Our review of Stedelijk museum
Beautiful collection of modern art
The Stedelijk Museum displays contemporary art from the 20th century. The museum has a large and beautiful collection. With enough sounding names such as Picasso, Matisse, Van Gogh, Mondrian and Andy Warhol.
New construction is called 'the badkuip'
The Stedelijk Museum was recently renovated and has a state of the art construction, which is a reason for some discussion. One think it is incredibly beautiful, while others find it ugly. The modern construction provides the connection to the NOW with the original old building. In this modern area you will also find the entrance on the Museumplein.
The beautiful collection has a alternately set-up, so that the visitor continues to hold his attention. The excellent audio tour is a very nice addition to your visit. There are many modern works that impress. Also some works of art that you will think: 'I can do that myself...'. In addition, there is a design exhibition with chairs, audio equipment, tableware, posters etc. This is very nice area to walk through.
One of the better museums
The signposts could be clearer here and there. Finding the toilet was just a search task. After many years of renovation, the Stedelijk museum is entirely back for anyone with any interest in modern art. One of the better museums of Amsterdam.
