Queer Gaze Tour

The Amsterdam Museum is organising Queer Gaze Tours, where guest tour guides, who are part of various LGBTQ+ communities and movements, tell stories in relation to the Amsterdam Museum's collection.

Alex Kain previously gave a tour in January; due to the many registrations, she will return on Sunday 19 March to be your guide for the Panorama Amsterdam exhibition. Through a variety of artworks and objects, she will take you through Amsterdam's LGBTQ+ history and reflect with you on the Amsterdam Museum's collection and presentation. Which queer-related stories do you think should not be missing from the museum?

The Queer Gaze Tours

This tour introduces visitors to the rich past and present of Amsterdam's LGBTQI+ community. Guest tour guides who are part of this community tell stories in relation to the Amsterdam Museum's collection. They focus on artworks and objects that give explicit visibility to the LGBTQI+ community and share stories of inequality, injustice and oppression as well as stories of pride, collectivity and activism.

Panorama Amsterdam

Panorama Amsterdam reveals the many facets of the city. What are the foremost characteristics that define Amsterdam? And has it always been that way? How will the city continue to develop? By connecting stories from the past, present, and future, a broader perspective of the city emerges: Amsterdam, in all its dimensions.
