The understanding of the role of the nature that showed the cubical forms to a little Piet and rooted the creativity ideas which later were reflected in his creation, comes to you when you take the paths which lead to the house of Mondrian’s birth.
Cubical forms are everywhere in this little neighborhood of Amersfoort.

This musea is an eye opener to several unknown details from the life of Piet Mondrian and his early works. It’s also the place to discovery the talented artists who’re exposing in this museum.

The important aspect of this house-museum is that despite the non spacious size of it, it is wheelchair friendly!

This was a wonderful visit. Two rooms with information on Mondriaan, a replica of his studioconcert Paris, two video displays, and a room with art inspired by Mondriaan. The second video display on its own made the visit worthwhile; a multi media artwork on Mondriaan’s New York period.

Highly recommended.

There are many reviews on Tripadvisor praising Mondriaanhuis. I, however, found the place wanting. I wanted to know what drove his art, what drove De Stijl. I found nothing here to inform me. The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam shows how such enlightenment can be achieved. Here, there was historical narrative. There was a reconstruction of his apartment. There was a 3D light and music extravaganza about his time in New York to entertain the visitors. There are none of his works. You can buy coffee and consumer goods as part of your recreational experience. For me, it wasn't enough.

We made a detour to visit Amersfoort and the house where Mondrian was born. We like his work so wanted to stop off and visit. Unfortunately it was a big waste of time. The film show was high tech and was presented professionally but we wanted the story and even see his work. Expensive, overpriced and under delivered! The several floors and rooms were disjointed. Why would we want to see other designers! Sparse and not what we expected. Lots of galvanised stair to negotiate. Gift shop selling overpriced merchandise finished it off for us!

It's a small museum but nevertheless worthwhile. Some of the expositions were closed for renovation at the time of our visit, but we still managed to learn a lot about Mondriaan's life and story, and even got to try our hand at DIY Mondriaan lego art!

Sadly 10 € is an unjustifiable charge for this only marginally interesting museum. All the explanations are in Dutch only, there are no actual Mondrian paintings on view, nor even much of a sense of what the building was like when he lived here, just a small reconstruction of his studio in Paris and a rather ordinary exhibition which attempts to put his life and work in context
Disappointing and not worth the money!

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?

Interesting holograms can be seen in the different rooms of his house. This is well worth a visit. Amersfoort is nice in general.

Very good museum about Piet Mondriaan (or Mondrian if you like). Additionally, there was plenty of artworks from guest artists who had some kind of relation with Mondrian's works. If you visit in Amersfoort, this you have to see.

Not really my cup of tea art wise but an interesting visit to the birthplace of a modern artist all A level art students will know of.
