Groote Museum

The Groote Museum is one of the finest and best kept treasures in Amsterdam and the oldest remaining museum building still in the city. The Groote Museum was closed to the public in 1947 but is now to be restored as part of the wide-scale renovation of ARTIS.

The Groote Museum will place nature, art and science in perspective. Together with the living collections in the park and in the context of Artisplein, the museum seeks to create awareness of the relationship between man and nature, and the meaning of nature in our culture. It aims to offer visitors a perspective to enable them to develop a better understanding of the impact of human behaviour on nature and biodiversity and, especially, learn to assess their own role in that context.
