The Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is the main art museum in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The museum began in 1847 with the collection of Frans Jacob Otto Boijmans (1767 - 1847). In 1958 the collection of businessman Daniël George van Beuningen (1877 - 1955) was added to the museum. At this point the museum acquired its current name.
