This is a fantastic gallery with many works from leading Dutch painters such as Appel and Alechinsky. This is a wonderful exhibition space with the upper floor being quite outstanding. The gallery is 'abstract art' in the main so if you don't like modern art save yourself a journey. The journey itself is quite challenging as there is no signage... More

I live in Amstelveen and I have a Museumkaart which allows me to hop in at any time convenient to me. And that is what I do regularly and I never get tired of this museum. The building as such is already quite enjoyable with regard to its architecture and its exhibition provides an excellent oberview of the Cobra group.... More

That's the modern contemporary art. The graphic work is usualy beautiful made and understanable. Some artworks you can say it "What the hell"" is that.. A big exposition space, a lot of light and that's what I like of this museum

This is a museum which is often left out of 'the big six' but well worth a visit. I am sad it moved from is basic unnotable location to this new one. I all ways thought the contents after entering a tatty plane building was over whelming - the new building might take you expectations beyond what you will see.... More

The name suggests this is a museum with a large collection of art from the Cobra movement, but I didn't notice any of that. It is just a museum for modern art, and quite a small one. I went through the ground floor in 15 minutes. There are some paintings, sculptures, and carpets. Not too bad, but also nothing that... More

This small museum on moden art is conveniently located on the edge of the shopping centre Stadshart of Amstelveen. More than enough parking space, allbeit at a price. The museum itself shows art of the Cobra group. Artist from Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam, more or less. During my visit there were also oother exhibitions apart from the Cobra collection.

No parking facilities. Parking on 300 meters which is far too much for people with a handicap. Website did not mention the extra price of 5 euro's for the Miro exposition. Too expensive. Unstructured exposition. Ugly location in an ugly area. Unfriendly staff.

Museum situated quite away from the centrum. I took a green bus 170 there, and to my surprise my public transport card was not valid there, I had to pay extra money for the ticket. The museum is rather small and the most important part of it for me was a big exhibition of Jean Miro. Indeed fantastic exhibition, you... More
