The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (lit. City Museum Amsterdam) is a museum for modern art in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. It is located at Museum Square, close to the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum.

Its collection includes a room painted by Karel Appel and a large collection of paintings by Kazimir Malevich.

The Museumplein venue is closed for renovation works, scheduled to end in December 2009. Until October 2008, the Stedelijk had been temporarily relocated to a former postal building just east of the Central Station. Now, an initiative called Stedelijk Goes to Town is ongoing: the museum is organising exhibitions, projects, workshops and other activities throughout Amsterdam.
