*What can you visit?
Yayoi Kusama. The Dutch Years 1965-1970 paints a surprising new picture of a self-aware young Kusama, who laid the foundations for her world-conquering artistic oeuvre in a version of the Netherlands characterised by its Provo counterculture movement, happenings and youth culture.
From 27 January to 8 June 2024, the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam will be presenting the first solo exhibition of the artist AiRich. Her work primarily consists of Afrofuturistic portrait series that celebrate a colourful and empowering world and a future full of extravagant Black people. In the portraits, in which the artist herself also features, she emphasises the importance of rediscovering and redefining Black identity. AiRich puts a futuristic and otherworldly spin on Black identity, drawing on pop culture, fashion, music, science fiction and mythology
There is perhaps no issue that is more at the forefront of political debate at the moment than poverty. Unfortunately, for many Schiedam residents, living on a shoestring is a fact of life. And yet poverty is hardly a new phenomenon. Over the centuries, there have always been Schiedammers struggling to make ends meet, and people who have cared for them – like those who worked at the Sint Jacobsgasthuis, the former hospital for ‘destitute elderly’. Since 1940, that same building has been home to the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, and it is here that the exhibition 'Out of poverty. Art, History and Stories' brings together the past and the present.
From September 23, the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam will be presenting its latest acquisition, Levi van Veluw’s Planetary Chapel (2021), in a blue, tranquil space specially designed for the piece. Externally, the work resembles a modern interpretation of a small altar. It features an ingenious mechanism, designed by Van Veluw himself, which opens the hatches and reveals an extraordinary interplay of rotating golden planets.
In Panorama Schiedam, the museum tells stories of the city, from hard workers, dreamers and adventurers to heroes, strategists and survivors.
To celebrate the updated stairwells we asked six contemporary artists to place a work in these beautiful spots in the building.
*To look forward to.
This spring, the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam is presenting a retrospective of the Danish artist Else Alfelt (1910-1974). Through her fascination with nature and the cosmos, Alfelt carved out a niche for herself within the international Cobra movement. Her colourful and abstract landscapes often feature motifs that were important to her, such as the moon, the sun, mountains, rivers, spirals and other natural elements.

*This is how you get to us.
3111 HL Schiedam
By public transport, bike or car?
Here’s some tips on how to get to us.
Buses 51, 54 and 89, and trams 21 and 24 stop at the Koemarkt stop, a three-minute walk from the museum.
You can take a tram or walk directly from Schiedam Centraal train station, where there are regular trains including the five-minute Intercity from Rotterdam Centraal.
It’s a 20-minute walk from the station to the museum, past the beautiful Sint Janskerk, and the tree on the Grote Markt in which Carice van Houten sat as Poes Minoes in the film of the same name. A small detour will take you along the newly restored Lange Haven, the main artery of the historic centre.
Plan your journey easily with 9292.
It’s just a 20-minute cycle from Rotterdam Centraal, and there is bicycle parking on the street in front of the museum.
Of course, nothing is too far with a car! There’s paid parking near the museum using a bank card or parking app, but spaces are limited. There are three different car parks a short walking distance from the museum. We recommend the first because the route to the museum takes you past some beautiful spots in the old city centre.
