Linda Snoek new director of Diamond Museum Amsterdam

On Monday 19 September, Linda Snoek started as director of the Diamond Museum Amsterdam. She thereby succeeds Robert Tamara, who founded the museum in 2007 and over the past 15 years has developed it into the diamond museum of Europe.


Linda Snoek (1989) has a rich CV in both the cultural and tourism sectors. After studying Museology at the Amsterdam School of the Arts, she held various positions in the cultural sector at the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, among others. In this capacity, her responsibilities included the realisation of new communication strategies and the further development of the national and international sales & marketing activities of both museums. She also has extensive experience within press & publicity. Highlights were the (re)opening of the Rijksmuseum (2013), the relocation of the Van Gogh Museum to the Hermitage (2012) and the many exhibitions such as Late Rembrandt (2015). In addition, Linda gained extensive experience in the commercial sector in recent years at Tiqets, an online booking platform for museums & attractions. As Regional Manager, she led the Benelux team and, alongside several projects, was responsible for expanding and improving the region.


Robert Tamara: ‘It was with great pride that I set up the museum and made it what it is today. I have always enjoyed doing this, but it is time to pass it on. I am delighted that Linda is joining the museum and look forward to seeing it continue to grow.‘


Linda Snoek: ‘The Diamond Museum is a wonderful museum that I will work for with great honour. It feels good to be back at the Museum Square and to be able to re-engage with my love for museums. There is a fantastic foundation for further growth to showcase this museum to as many visitors as possible!’
