depot boijmans van beuningen - rotterdam
Wednesday 24th of November - Depot Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam
Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen is the world’s first publicly accessible art storage facility. The depot is located next to Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Museumpark in Rotterdam. Visitors can see the result of 172 years of collecting. More than 151,000 objects housed together, arranged in fourteen storage compartments with five different climates. Next to the objects, all the activities that go into preserving and managing a collection are on open view in the building.
We were already huge fans of the outside of the Depot building in the museum park. Now that we have visited the inside as well and experienced the magnificent panoramic view of the city from the roofgarden, it's definitely my favorite building in Rotterdam.
And as icing on the cake, we were served by my dear former colleague Frankie during lunch in museum restaurant Renilde on the roof of Depot. Great afternoon!
