A future for the past
For 75 years, since it was founded in 1934, the Allard Pierson Museum has been Amsterdam's foremost venue for discovering archaeology and the ancient civilisations of Egypt, the Near East, the Greek world and the Roman Empire. To mark this 75th anniversary, a new exhibition will open, entitled A Future for the Past, bringing together the past, present and future.
Savour the nostalgia - quite literally - as you enjoy the museum of the early years (1934 - 1976). Experience the modern museum (1976 - present) from a new perspective as you view the personal selection of departing director Robert Lunsingh Scheurleer. And visit the museum of the future where archaeology is revived using state-of-the-art visualisation techniques. Play an active part rather than just being a spectator.
