I was pleased to find the renovated museum was open on this trip. I wasn't so pleased with navigating the crowd inside - it was not at all clear which line to use if you had a Museumkaart, but we were eventually helped by a smiling person. I particularly enjoyed the older open central space with it's posters of old exhibitions and neon lighting ... as well as the room with the Calder mobiles and the large textile art area and the ceramics. I am not a fan of Mike Kelley and one of his audio pieces was irritatingly loud - it could be heard throughout the different exhibits and I found it annoyingly intrusive as I had no choice as to whether I experienced it or not. Overall I enjoyed the rest of the exhibits and we spent several hours investigating and discovering.
