There are always several exhibitions on art and history in the museum. You can also drink coffee again ‘without cold ankles’, buy a gift in our museum shop or get creative in the renovated Atelier.
*What can you visit?
This major retrospective of the Dutch artist Frieda Hunziker (1908-1966) combines Hunziker’s gaze, a visitor to the island, with that of artists observing the island from an insider’s perspective. Both then and now.
Femmy Otten’s oeuvre is eclectic: she draws and paints, makes sculptures and murals and also features in her own performances. In her solo exhibition We Once Were One, the artist fervently argues for vulnerability and intimacy in these entrenched and capricious times.
Four different countries on the continent of Africa to the expansive landscapes of Iceland and Greenland and the warmth of the Italian village of Rivello. Painter Anton Rooskens (1906-1976) travelled to many different countries in search of inspiration for his work.
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.
The words ‘Fuck the Dictator‘ adorned the boxing robe that visual artist Anne Wenzel wore when she stepped into the ring at the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam on 14 September 2019. Her opponent was the museum’s director at the time, Deirdre Carasso. Wenzel defeated Carasso and won carte blanche at the museum. The current museum director, Anne de Haij, is now honouring that promise and has granted Anne Wenzel complete freedom on a floor of one of the wings of the museum, as well as the support of the museum’s team, to do whatever she likes with it.
From stunning installations to subtle shadows, Ekstasis will transform the museum into a pleasure garden for the senses. The exhibition reveals how artists use the latest devices and tools to evoke a temporary, different reality – and how this changes from one era to the next. What do you want to escape? And how do you do that?
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.

*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.
