  • We had just finished the van Gogh Museum and figured we might as well do this one since it was next door and part of our I amsterdam card. Frankly, this just didn't do it for us. There's a lot of quir...  read more »
  • I confess that modern art is not my favorite kind of art! But there are renowned artists with various works of God! For some I just don't have the patience.

  • The museum is awesome if you like art. Really interesting pictures, installations and sculptures. It impresses deeply. Definitely recommended:) 
  • Gorgeous modern-contemporary art museum. Excellent collection from the impressionists but with a focus on modern. Had some nice exhibits/projects for kids. When i was there kids could make a 3d cardboard clock in the Amsterdam modern style. A warning is just a few of the art pieces were i thought a little much for kids (graphic oral sex for example). However, i was able to move mine quickly past them without them noticing.
  • Fun museum, very different than all the traditional museums in Amsterdam. You will find some Warhol's and Kandinsky's on display. Very cool neon piece on level B1.
  • Some of the collection was really impressive, other pieces were simply ridiculous. Highlights are pieces from the likes of Mondrian and Picasso, along with an area where children (or fun loving adults!) can try their hand at drawing different exotic birds. Overall, if you're like me and don't truly appreciate modern art, I would not recommend this museum.
  • A fantastic collection of modern art, housed in an interesting building. At the time of visiting contained a fascinating collection of Amsterdam School furnishings and artwork on the upper floor, with the permanent collection also being of great interest. Museum restaurant and cafe is also of interest.
  • One of the best modern and contemporary art museums I've ever seen in my life. The collection includes masterpieces from artists like Van Gogh, Kandisky, Chagall, Warhol and so on.
