If you had to describe the Moco Museum on the Museumplein in Amsterdam, you can do it as a very accessible museum where the focus is on modern and contemporary art. However, there is much more to say about the museum, which, incidentally, only opened its doors in 2016.
Just because of the unique location more than worth a visit
The Moco Museum is a private museum that you will not soon forget. This is due to its location on the Museumplein alone. The museum is located in villa Alsberg, a well-known mansion and one of the first mansions to be located on the Museumplein. The house was already designed in 1904 by Eduard Cuypers, a first cousin of Pierre Cuypers, a well-known architect at the time. Cuypers put down something beautiful, because the house that now serves as a museum has lost nothing of its appearance in all those years.
The focus is emphatically on modern and contemporary art
However, you mainly visit the museum because of the space that modern and contemporary art is given. The private museum has mainly focused on these art forms. It also wants to attract the widest possible audience and also focuses on young people. The Moco Museum is active and from the start in 2016 you can see the most interesting exhibitions. The first to exhibit was Roy Lichtsteiner, the last exhibition in 2020 was that of Studio Irma, an art exhibition in which space and modern technology played the leading role. Because of the active attitude and certainly also because the outdoor space of the museum is also beautifully decorated, more and more people know where to find the museum from the opening. Various artists have given the outdoor space a unique decoration. Don’t forget to check that out.
