Van Gogh Museum sounds gong for new entrance

Axel Rüger, director of the Amsterdam Van Gogh Museum, sounds the gong on the occasion of the opening of the new building entrance on 5 September. He is accompanied by a delegation of Euronext-listed sponsors Van Lanschot (ticker symbol: LANS) and Heineken (ticker symbol: HEIA). 

Construction to move the main entrance to Museumplein has gone very well. It has been delivered within the tight eighteen-month deadline, and on budget. The all-glass entrance hall features high-quality structural engineering and systems, with modern walls and flooring. There is a spacious, well-lit foyer with cloakrooms and a revamped museum shop stocked with more than 500 new products. Improved access, better logistics and more space will allow the visitors a much warmer welcome than before. Moreover, this arrangement better suits the upgraded Museumplein – all its cultural institutions now have their entrances facing the square. To mark the opening of the new entrance hall, a major event is being held on Museumplein on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 September. From 4 pm on Sunday, a total of 125,000 sunflowers will be handed out to members of the public.
