“It's a special place with a lazy curator.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

The location of this museum is just fantastic. You are in Amersfoort one of my favorite cities in the world. Yet, the museum in this canal house is a bit poor in what it offers. You will ask yourself "that's it?" That is becuase it is probably kept up by volunteers without much funding. Still, they are lazy. The collection or history stays the same and this place cold offer so much more. Where is the inner story of Mondriaan, this visionary who was so many years ahead of his time?

“Nice chronological overview of Mondriaan's life”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

A nice and not too large museum, located in the old house where Mondriaan used to live. I liked the chronological overview of Mondriaan's life in one of the rooms. There is also a room with some of his early, lesser known works. And a replica of one of his ateliers. There are several rooms with temporary exhibitions of contemporary art. I really liked the very colorful works on display when I visited, but your experience may differ, as these exhibitions change at regular intervals.

“It's where it all started.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

If you like Mondrian then a short pilgrimage to his home in Amersfoort is a must. Although you can find good Mondrian's all over the place in Holland and abroad there is something very special to see his art in his house. Well worth the visit.
