Full description

Explore various artifacts and artworks with a skip-the-line entry ticket to Stedelijk Museum. Enjoy your priority access and learn about modern and contemporary art.

Discover key art movements at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, also known as the most important museum of modern and contemporary art and design in the Netherlands.

Situated on Museumplein, where it first opened in 1895, it is a neighbor to the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum. Having undergone extensive renovation, the historic Stedelijk building has been expanded with the addition of a futuristic new wing. The addition has been a huge hit with visitors since the facility’s reopening in 2012. Your skip-the-line ticket to the Stedelijk grants you priority access to a collection of 90,000 artifacts. Admire extraordinary works by world-renowned artists, including a great number of pieces by major 20th-century Dutch artists. Key movements in the world of art and design that are featured include Bauhaus, Amsterdam School, De Stijl, CoBrA, Abstract Expressionism, Pop art, Minimal art, and Conceptual art.

Artists represented include Jeff Koons, Daan Roosegaarde, Steve McQueen, Remy Jungerman, Waldi Raad, Iris Kensmil, among others.

The collection from 1880 until 1950 is currently not on view. This means that works from for instance, Gerrit Rietveld, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, and Kazimir Malevich are not on view in the museum. They will be back on the 10th of September. However, the two collection displays with art and design from 1950 until now are on view with Marlene Dumas, El Anatsui, Henri Matisse, and many more. Temporary exhibition now on view (26 May - 4 September 2022): IT’S OUR F***ING BACKYARD - DESIGNING MATERIAL FUTURES It’s Our F***ing Backyard spotlights our time’s greatest challenge: the climate crisis. It involves 80 projects from all over the world showing how designers can have a major impact by looking at materials in radical and new ways.

The resulting designs are responsible, but also beautiful, comfortable and unexpectedly accessible. Urgency of the climate crisis.

With many problems, people tend to think 'not in my backyard'. But the climate problem is precisely about our backyard: It's our backyard.

The exhibition expresses the urgency of the climate problem and aims to make you think differently about the use of materials and design’s social importance.

The exhibition shows that designers can make an important difference. They find new uses for waste material, like a lamp made from orange peels and jewelry made from ocean plastic for Balenciaga.

Some projects focus on the use of natural materials, such as a fungal mycelium tunnel and flax- and bio-based resin surfboard. There’s even a light installation powered by micro-organisms that need to be fed during the exhibition period.

We really enjoyed the Stedelijk Museum! It will become one of our favorites. The museum provided free audio guide, but you should bring your own headphones (not supplied). Not only did we recognize many of the modern artists on the lower flow, but we were learned so much additionally about eco trends in art, fabrics, furniture etc. as well as being able touch and see many of the amazing products. We also enjoyed the many video displays on the upper floor. The museum itself is a piece of art inside and out. It is so unusual. The entrance floor had a black-light and multi-media series of rooms that were fascinating. We also noticed a hands on and "play" area for the little ones. The museum was not crowded. We spent 2 hours and probably could have spent more. Maybe it's because we had no expectations that the museum had such a great impact. We highly recommend!

Visiting this museum, I was not sure what we would see or experience. It was easy going and interesting. The staff at the entrance were helpful and friendly. However, having a security guard follow us through the museum being the only other racially diverse visitors on the day was unnecessary and ruined the visit.

I don't think you need a skip-the-line ticket here.

Perhaps we got lucky and simply went when it was not busy, but we were there during the busiest time of year (early May). This is clearly the least popular museum out of the "big three" - the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk, and the Van Gogh Museum. There was no line and not really many people there. My family is very into modern art and the pieces there were quite meaningful to me! They do have a couple of Van Goghs, a Rothko, Picassos, and many other recognizable artists in their permanent collection. I found the current exhibits to be really excellent. The cafe is overpriced, but you expect that from any museum.
