Het Nieuwe Instituut is temporarily closed
For Het Nieuwe Instituut, the health and safety of our visitors and employees is paramount. Due to the recent developments concerning COVID-19 and the associated restrictions on travel to the USA and the organization of public events in museums, the institute has decided to close the building and Sonneveld House up until 1 June.
As far as possible, the institute is continuing its programme of activities in digital form. More information on this will be available shortly at: hetnieuweinstituut.nl/en/live
Het Nieuwe Instituut is following developments closely and will open its doors again as soon as possible.
