Fodor's Expert Review Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen

Rotterdam Museum/Gallery
Opening in 2021, and resembling a giant mirror-clad bowl designed to reflect the Rotterdam skyline, this storage facility for artworks owned by the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is both a stunning reaffirmation of the city's reputation for architectural innovation and yet another symbol of its cultural importance. The adjacent museum is undergoing major renovation that will not be completed until 2026, but in the meantime visitors who cannot wait for it to reopen can tour the depot, with a guide and a guard, and check out the entire 151,000-strong collection—containing works by Monet, Rembrandt, Mondriaan, Warhol, and many others—on pull-out racks. For an alternative view of the city, check out the rooftop garden, which is home to 75 trees.
