The only cultural thing worth it in Amstelveen

Nice place to visit with kids as they get to do their own thing. Small and elegant gallery and certainly worth ONE visit - if you're in the area.

This is the museum of the post-war Copenhagen - Bruxelles - Amsterdam art movement (1948-51). When we visited there was an interesting special exhibition celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the birth of the Danish painter Asger Jorn (and another exhibition with works of no relevance to CoBrA). It was a pity that only a few of the permanent collections... More

Go modern in Amsterdam - very enjoyable. Don`t loose your mind, it`s art. The spacious room presententation is worth to stay here a couple of time.

First time we visited. Shame on us. It's great! This time there's a superb exhibition "from the Guggenheim collection to the Cobra Museum Amstelveen". Splendid, colourful, refreshing. We spend about 1.5 hours there and did not see time passing. We loved it! The museum is within easy reach from downtown AMS with tram nr 5. Although photos cannot do justice... More

On a rainy day in June visiting this museum was great. Good parking facilities in the nearby modern and relaxed shopping centre. In combination with the Gugenheim Collection wel worth the money. Very friendly staff. Is was also great to see some of the faumous dutch Cobra-painters

We visited the Cobra museum on Sunday 11th may. We arrived at 2 pm, and thought we would have ample time, since the museum closes at 5. There was a shortage of lockers, as the current visiting exhibition is Solomon R. Guggenheim's International Abstraction: 1949-1960, a very varied and exciting show, adding to the wonderful permanent collection of the Cobra... More

This is easily the best, and least known, gallery in Amsterdam. A bit of a trek but worth it for the main collection and the visiting exhibitions. Cannot recommend it too much!

COBRA is considered the second best Museum from the Netherlands, after the Stedelijk, from Amsterdam. Actually, it is located in Amstelveen, where I live, which is a different municipality from Amsterdam. It has a beautiful building, worth a visit as well for its modern architecture. The name COBRA stand for Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam, referring to the home cities from... More

We made a special trip to see the works of Hundertwasser as our son is studying his works at school. Very colourful and no straight lines which made me think that I actually like straight lines and patterns. Art should make you think and this did. I did not agree with all but a great space and everyone was very... More
