80 YEARS KRöller-Müller Museum

In 2018 the Kröller-Müller Museum celebrates its 80th anniversary.
We are marking this with the launch of the Timeline. Full of fascinating stories from our archives, which have never previously been made public.

About the Timeline

In our anniversary-year (July 2018-2019), stories about our museum will be added to the Timeline chronologically.
The stories of the period of director Rudi Oxenaar (1963-1990) have been published recently. In the 1970s, he extended the museum with a new wing designed by Dutch architect Wim Quist. The glass walls of the building emphasize one of the museum’s fundamental ideas: the combination of art, nature and architecture.
