Support us

We connect Amsterdam’s residents and visitors with each other and with the city. We do this through programming, presenting, and collecting Amsterdam’s objects and stories. As a private individual, company, fund, or family foundation, you can make an indispensable contribution to our activities, including restoration, acquisition of new artworks or objects, organizing exhibitions, and the upcoming renovation of the Burgerweeshuis.

With your donation, large or small, you can contribute to strengthening the solidarity between residents and visitors of Amsterdam. We make the city’s history, heritage, art, culture, and stories audible, visible, and shareable so that residents and visitors can work together to shape a better city for everyone.

From a one-time donation to a particular project to a deeper relationship with the historical and contemporary stories and unique collection of the city of Amsterdam, we offer a diverse range of options to support the museum. You can donate once or periodically. It is also possible to donate or bequeath objects to the museum.


Amsterdam and entrepreneurship are intimately connected. Without entrepreneurs, Amsterdam would never have become the city it is today. Likewise, entrepreneurs in Amsterdam also owe their success to the city. By partnering with the Amsterdam Museum, companies have the opportunity to contribute to their beloved city. We develop activities that inspire your employees and customers. Together we achieve more as a result, through a collaboration that is personal and custom-made.

The Amsterdam Museum values every donation, large or small. We offer the possibility to make a one-time donation to a specific project. We will ensure you’re involved in the project you support.


We also welcome periodic donations to the Amsterdam Museum. We will gladly assist with preparing the notarial documents.


You can also donate objects to the Amsterdam Museum. Our acquisition committee assesses whether the object meets the museum’s collection conditions. It may be possible to pay inheritance tax with art.


You can make a bequest to the Amsterdam Museum in your will. You can name the Amsterdam Museum as inheritor in your will and specify which part of your inheritance should be given to the museum. As a charitable organization, the Amsterdam Museum is exempt from paying gift and inheritance tax. Your donation will therefore fully benefit the museum.

Amsterdam City Circle

The Amsterdam City Circle is a network for curious culture enthusiasts and companies that love Amsterdam. The museum organizes exclusive events, stimulating lectures, special previews, and sneak peeks behind the scenes, especially curated for this group, grounded in the city and with the collection as context. Moreover, you will get to know other Amsterdammers who make the city what it is.

Funds and foundations

The Amsterdam Museum presents exhibitions on a wide array of subjects from the city. With this, we share knowledge, show art and heritage, and tell relevant stories from the past, the present, and the future. We offer new perspectives on the existing collection and are working on an inclusive, Amsterdam-inspired collection for current museum visitors and with a focus on future generations. Without the financial support of various funds and foundations, it is impossible to realize these special projects. Every bit of support is therefore welcome, whether large or small, one-time, or multiyear.

For more information about donations and bequests, please contact Team Development at or call +31205231721.
