After being closed to the public for 75 years, one of the oldest museum buildings in Amsterdam has been restored, renovated and given a completely new concept: The Groote Museum.
In ARTIS- Groote Museum, visitors discover not only the differences and similarities, but above all the connection between everything that lives: humans, animals, plants and microbes. “After a visit, you will look at everything that lives in ARTIS with a different perspective: with more wonder and a greater sense of connection. This is how we inspire visitors to make a difference in the challenges of today and tomorrow” says Rembrandt Sutorius, ARTIS director.
After fitting out the award-winning ARTIS-Micropia, Bruns was also asked to develop and produce the exhibition for this second museum at ARTIS. With care for the monumental building, a completely new interior designed by Kossmanndejong was developed, produced and realised. In consultation with the ARTIS team, Bruns was responsible for the twelve themed zones that make up the new museum, including the central hall and a work of art.
