Het Nieuwe Instituut is the Netherlands’ national museum for architecture, design and digital culture. Located in Rotterdam, in the Museum Park with Kunsthal Rotterdam and Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen as neighbours, Het Nieuwe Instituut has various exhibition spaces, a museum shop, a museum café, an auditorium, educational spaces and a garden. The architecture collection that the institute manages can be consulted in the Research Centre.

Het Nieuwe Instituut focuses on important social developments, such as the housing shortage, the energy transition, the rise of artificial intelligence, mobility, and the use of public space. Designers, including architects and digital makers, can make important contributions to these developments. Het Nieuwe Instituut showcases the work of designers, brings people into contact with each other, and collects, develops and shares knowledge. (2022)

The organisation arose in 2013 out of a merger between the Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAi); Premsela, the Netherlands Institute for Design and Fashion; and Virtueel Platform, the e-culture knowledge institute.
