Maria Montessori’s former study is preserved and open to the public at the AMI Head Office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The property next to AMI’s Head Office is currently being renovated to become the Maria Montessori House, including an exhibition space, research and archive centre of Maria Montessori’s published works and unpublished material, and a meeting space for discussion and knowledge sharing.

The generous support of major benefactors, Orcillia and Nicky Oppenheimer, enabled AMI to purchase this property. 

Support the Maria Montessori House

We are aiming to fundraise at least 1.5 million Euro to build an exceptional centre which will require excavation and reconfiguring of our basements. Donors will receive a "Brick Certificate" and all donor names will be recorded on a Founding Member Plaque.

Donation categories:

  • Friend: Up to 1,000 Euro
  • Contributor: 1,000 to 5,000 Euro
  • Pioneer: 5,000 to 10,000 Euro
  • Benefactor: 10,000 to 50,000 Euro
  • Founder: 50,000 to 100,000 Euro
