Amsterdam (The Netherlands)
Van Gogh MuseumThe Van Gogh Museum inspires a diverse audience with the life and work of Vincent van Gogh and his time. It is authentic, in connection and original. These core values function as an ethical compass for the museum and staff. Together, the core values are the yardstick by which the museum will measure all its activities – existing and new. The core values keep each other in balance and strengthen each other where necessary. The Van Gogh Museum aims to take a leading position in its core competencies: research, exhibitions, educational programmes, publications, social media, access to the collection, development, but also in the areas of sustainability, how it functions as an employer, safety, management of visitors through its buildings, commercial activities and much more. The museum wants to develop its leading position further in the coming years. It wants to set an example for the museum sector at home and abroad, without losing sight of its core values and mission. In 2023, the Van Gogh Museum will celebrate its fiftieth jubilee. This extraordinary moment will be marked by extensive, distinguished celebrations, fully in line with the museum's mission and core values.
