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

We went to the Cobra to see the Miro-Cobra Exhibit, and were more than impressed. This museum is easy to get to and is outstanding. They have an excellent exhibition area and a good shop. I recommend the Cobra very highly.

I do not like Cobra very much, and I do not like the Cobra Museum in Amstelveen in particular. It looks like a cheaply designed shoebox that fits well with the average Vinex architecturual style that can be found all over the Netherlands. However, the museum hosted a temporary exhibition on Miro, which featured a large number of his works... More

Even though the Cobra museum is considered a small museum they always managed to amaze. I recently saw the Miro Cobra exhibition and it's truly inspiring how they create it. They make such god use of their space, creating look throughs and mazy kinda passage way, which makes evrey exhibition an adventure.
