Modern and contemporary art and design Feb 10, 2013
The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam is - in The Netherlands- THE museum of modern and contemporary art and design. After a lengthy renovation (the museum closed on January 1 in 2004) and the construction of a new wing the museum was reopened in September 2012. Today I had the opportunity to visit!

First impression is the outside of the building, located at the Museumplein (Museum Plaza) in Amsterdam. You enter the building via the new wing, a white volume, called the ‘bath tub’. Designed by Mels Crouwel . You can read about the history of the building, the material of the new wing etc. on the museums website. Besides the history you can find all practical information about the museum and about the collection on this site: . The website is in Dutch and in English.

It is allowed to take photos (without flash) inside the museum. I took photos of the pieces I like most and the pieces which are remarkable to me. There is much more to see! The photos are only a selection. A little after 10.00 on this Sunday morning there was no line to get tickets, leaving the museum at about 1.15 pm the line was outside the building!

In the restaurant you can order a good cup of coffee (I didn’t have a meal).

The regular admission fee (for adults) is 15 euro. At this moment you pay 2.50 euro extra during the temporary ‘Mike Kelley’ exhibition (until April 1 2013). Cards as ‘Museumkaart’ and ‘I Amsterdam city card’ and some other cards are valid (check the website).
