Museum information

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam is one of the oldest museums in the Netherlands.
The museum shows how everyday objects have changed over the last eight hundred years, from medieval jugs and glassware from Holland’s Golden Age to Rietveld furniture and contemporary Dutch design.

The museum houses a unique collection of paintings, sculptures and everyday objects. The collection of prints and drawings is one of the best in the world.

Boijmans Van Beuningen offers an overview of Dutch and European art, from the early Middle Ages to the 21st century. On display are the paintings ‘The little tower of Babel’ from 1563 by Bruegel, ‘The Three Marys’ by Jan van Eyck, and ‘Titus’ by Rembrandt, but also the ‘Lip Bank’ by Salvador Dalí.
