It looks like a cultural institution in the Netherlands is about the show-off exactly how the storage of art can be transformed for public access. The topic of getting art out of vast stores and into galleries is one that this blog has been passionate about for a long time now.

The Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam is set to open its new publicly accessible art storage facility on 6th November 2021. The Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen claims to be the first of its kind, allowing visitors to not only have unprecedented access to the art in its stores (around 151,000 objects) but also be able to view the activities that go into preserving and caring for such a vast collection.

Let's hope museums and galleries around the world take note.
