Must-See Art Exhibitions In The Netherlands 2020

After a period of silence we are back again with our yearly selection of must-see exhibitions in The Netherlands 2020. Since we are pretty early this time, we also add a bit of 2019 still.

This list contains exhibitions, which we would love to visit once they are on. Once we have been to an exhibition, we commonly post some visuals on our Instagram page, so feel free to check that out as well.

Throughout the year we will add more exhibitions to this list. So please come back to see what is new. Exhibitions that are behind our back, we will delete now and then, to keep this list up to date.

Also, if you have any recommendations, please share in the comments or send us an email. We love to hear from you.

After having missed the Frida Kahlo exhibition in London in 2018, we are super-excited to hear about the Frida Kahlo exhibition in the Drents Museum. With among others painting and drawings from the Museum Dolores Olmedo and personal objects, like clothing and jewellery, from the Frida Kahlo Museum (previously Casa Azul) we believe this exhibition must be as exciting as the one we missed in London.

TIP: With an average two-hour train ride from Amsterdam, Assen is not that closeby for those coming from the western part of the country. We recommend combining your visit with a day in Groningen or Leeuwarden. It will make a great (art) weekend away.

TIP: Ticket sales start from February 2020. Tickets are expected to sell quickly for popular dates. We therefore recommend you to buy your ticket well in advance.
