Welcome Reception

Welcome reception Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen

12th of September 2024

The venue of the welcome reception will be the Depot Boijmans van Beuningen. Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen is the world’s first publicly accessible art storage facility. Located next to Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam’s Museumpark, its visitors can see the result of 173 years of collecting. More than 152,000 objects are now stored, conserved and displayed in 14 spaces across five climate zones. As well as works of art, the processes behind managing and maintaining the collection are also on display.

The Depot boasts a stunning exterior and a spectacular interior. Take the glass lift to the sixth floor and discover something even more special: a panoramic view over the city from the roof terrace, as well as Restaurant Renilde and Coert Hall. Both are located amongst a green oasis at almost 40 meters above the ground.

Coert is a bright, open, and multifunctional space of over 200 square metres. Full-height windows allow daylight to stream in, with views over the beautiful greenery of the roof terrace and the city skyline. The room is equipped with basic technology such as a projector with screen and sound, and there’s always the possibility to add more audiovisual features. With the help our external partners, Coert can be adapted for a multitude of different set-ups, meaning each event can be tailor-made for you.

Across the glass atrium from Coert is Restaurant Renilde, offering seating for up to 120 guests. In the blink of an eye, Renilde’s beautiful, architect-designed wooden tables can fold away to create an event space of 200 square metres.

Besides the welcome drink it is also possible to book an additional tour. During the guided tour you will visit the Depot with an Art Mediator. You will see the artworks and learn more about what goes into preserving and managing a collection. One group is maximum 13 people and the tour takes about 60 min time.
