Time traveling - New online section
Helene Kröller-Müller’s unique art collection laid the foundation for the museum as you know it today. The Timeline includes her story, she bequeathed the world’s second largest Van Gogh collection to the Netherlands and founded one of the first museums for modern art in 1938. You will discover how Helene’s passion for art and nature originated, which art she collected, and what her dreamed museum looked like.
Read the stories about the directors of the Kröller-Müller Museum, their most important acquisitions and the collaboration with artists and architects. Isabelle Bisseling (researcher) takes you on a journey through the museum’s history, based on the online Timeline. A short video will be uploaded to YouTube and IGTV every two weeks. The first episode, From a merchant family, has been published (with English subtitles).

Film online: Jardin d’émail | The conservation in images
Due to the limited opening of the museum, not everyone was able to see the temporary presentation with film images about the conservation of Jardin d’émail (1974) by Jean Dubuffet. We have good news: you can now watch the film online. This film shows you how the ‘garden within a garden’ was slowly but surely restored to its former glory. The film is accompanied by a timeline with the history, realization, and previous conservation of the work. To the film >>
