With this app you have all the information at your fingertips. There are no museum labels in the depot, but with the app you will find the most important information for tens of thousands of artworks: who made it, in which year, with which materials and techniques, dimensions, and more.

The interactive stories require you to look more actively and help you to discover more – together with others.
You look at the works that appeal to you, make you curious or surprise you: works that match who you are. The app saves them in your own collection and turns you into an art collector. You will have your own inspiring Boijmans collection, always within reach!
More about Depot
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s collection is world famous. It has been growing for more than 172 years and currently comprises more than 151,000 objects with an estimated value of 8 billion euros.
Only eight percent of the collection could be displayed in the museum building. The majority of the works were stored in facilities that were not accessible to the public. In Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen you can see the entire collection, arranged not by period or art movement but based on the objects’ climate requirements.
