Bumper Year for Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen


ROTTERDAM.- For Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen an extraordinarily successful year has drawn to a close. More than 320,000 people visited the 30-plus presentations that the museum organised in its own building and on location. The museum made exceptional acquisitions and works of art from the collection could be admired all over the world. The museum brought art and design into many living rooms via Boijmans TV and online platforms. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen welcomed more than 320,000 visitors in 2010, to be inspired and moved by everything from the tailor-made hotel bed by Carsten Höller to modern masterpieces by Kees van Dongen and contemporary design by Hella Jongerius. Visitors were treated to dozens of informative activities in the museum and online. Special museum projects such as the exhibition about the master forger Han van Meegeren and the restoration of a painting by Dalí truly captured people’s imaginations.
