    The Municipality of Amsterdam

    The Municipality of Amsterdam and the Amsterdam Museum have a long history of cooperation. The museum (at the time, the Amsterdam Historical Museum) iss founded in 1926 as a municipal institution. The museum became independent in 2009, but continued to manage a large part of the collection of the city of Amsterdam. More information about the Amsterdam collection.

    The Amsterdam Museum is part of the Amsterdamse Basisinfrastructuur (the base infrastructure of Amsterdam) within the Kunstenplan 2021-2024 (the art plan of the municipality for 2021–2024). This structure offers the museum indispendable financial support for research, conservation, and presentation of the collection.

    The museum also works closely with the Municipality of Amsterdam for the renovation of the new Amsterdam Museum.

    Main Partner Education

    ELJA Foundation

    In collaboration with ELJA Foundation, the Amsterdam Museum is organizing a groundbreaking and innovative program in which children play a major role. Part of this is a Children's Museum.

    During LAB sessions, children from all seven districts and the Amsterdam metropolitan area, together with museum staff, are laying the foundations for this children's museum. They also create artworks together with well-known artists from Amsterdam that reflect on their life in the city.

    These artworks are presented in a so-called Children's Route that runs right through all of Amsterdam's districts. Residents and visitors will learn more about what occupies the children of Amsterdam. All the artworks together will then be exhibited in the Amsterdam Museum and become part of the collection. In addition to these LAB sessions, a Children's Sounding Board with a Children's Director will be appointed to help think about the new Amsterdam Museum.
