An introductory film is shown in the museum’s auditorium. With the help of old footage, archive material and animations, the film portrays the story of the museum’s unique history and its collection.
It goes without saying that the film, a co-production with INDG, focuses widely on the Kröller couple who founded the museum but it also casts the spotlight on the sculpture garden, which opened in 1961. The film is particularly special for its beautiful digital animations, which bring archive photographs and floor plans well and truly to life and take viewers along on a remarkable virtual tour through the first (small) museum in The Hague as well as the Big Museum by Henry van de Velde, which ultimately was never realised.
The film is around 25 minutes long and is shown continuously (alternately in Dutch and English versions).
Generous support for this film was provided by the VSBfonds.
