Stedelijk Museum Schiedam is a municipal museum for modern and contemporary art, history and society. The museum is located in Schiedam’s historical town centre, a quintessentially Dutch town with canals, churches and many wind mills of gin distilleries. Stedelijk Museum Schiedam might just be the friendliest museum of the Netherlands, with an astonishing collection of CoBrA and contemporary art. It’s a museum where visitors can decide how much their lunch costs and where locals have the chance to create their own exhibitions. An experimental New Art programme at the museum is created together with new networks that arise out of popular culture and/or non-Western art traditions.
