Great news! One of my favourite museums is opening again! The Kröller-Müller Museum reopens on 1 June!
Lisette Pelsers, director of the Kröller-Müller: ‘We are delighted to be able to receive our visitors again. We want to offer them a safe, but also enjoyable and relaxed visit. The peace and space of our sculpture garden and the beautiful surrounding nature will certainly help!’
A safe visit
In order to limit the number of visitors in the museum at the same time, tickets are only available via the museum’s website. You can book a time for the start of your visit. Online ticket sales will start on Friday 29 May.
Additional measures have also been taken in the museum. For example, a maximum number of visitors per room has been established and there is a fixed walking route, which takes you through the exhibitions and the entire collection. Hygiene measures have been taken for both the visitors and the museum staff.
The exhibitions Not in so many words and Pearls from the Far East, both of which were on display when the museum closed on 13 March, have been extended.
Ewerdt Hilgemann. Work in progress (1959-2020), just installed when the museum closed, is now on display for the first time.
You can find the full exhibition programme on the museum’s website, www.krollermuller.nl.
Jardin d’émail open again
In the sculpture garden, the visitors’ favourite Jardin d’émail (1974) by Jean Dubuffet (Le Havre, 1901-Paris, 1985) looks magnificent again after five years of conservation work. A film on the conservation process is showing in the Van de Velde wing of the museum. A book is also due for publication to mark the conservation.
The museum is open extra days in July and August
