Maria Montessori House

A once in a lifetime opportunity and the generous support of major benefactors, Orcillia and Nicky Oppenheimer, has enabled AMI to purchase the adjoining property to its Amsterdam Head Office. This will enable the establishment of Maria Montessori House incorporating a Museum, Open Archive and Research Centre. The hundred-year-old house needs to be stripped from top to bottom and converted into a welcoming, interactive space. We are aiming to fundraise at least 1.5 million Euro to be able to build an exceptional centre.
