When visiting Amsterdam, there are a lot of things that you could do, but this depends on the type of visitor that you are. If you are 50 years old and looking to enjoy the Dutch culture and scenery, you will want to go to de Negen Straatjes. You should also visit Dam Square, Madam Tussauds, and maybe the science museum Nemo. If you are a student visiting Amsterdam during the weekends, it is likely you don’t want to do any of these things. You’d rather wake up at 2 PM and party until the sunrises. However, I think there is one museum in Amsterdam that both the younger and the older visitors can both enjoy. It is called Moco Museum, and it is an amazing combination of beautiful classical art and contemporary design. Sadly, the Moco Museum is not that renowned, especially for tourist. I am here to right this wrong. Because I recently was in Amsterdam when a local tipped me to go to this museum, and it was an extremely fun experience.
Why is the Moco museum so exciting?
A word I thought I would never use in combination with museum is exciting. But that’s what the Moco Museum is. It is an incredible combination of classical and contemporary arts. It shows you art, but you can also experience it yourself. With working from for example Rothko, Kusama, and Hirst, you are suddenly transported. Especially for tourist, this is a museum you have to visit. The local was even kind enough to show me a link for Moco Museum korting, which means that he showed me how to get a discount on a ticket. This ticket, incidentally, is not even that expensive. The museum is also really accessible for any tourist in Amsterdam as it is really close to Het Rijksmuseum, which lies central within Amsterdam.
Is it worth my time in Amsterdam?
Whenever I am in a city, I don’t like feeling like a tourist. If you really want to experience what it is like to be Dutch, take a bike from central station to the Moco Museum. You can get a real good sense of what it is like being Dutch. If you want to go full Dutch, you should also try to get that Moco Museum korting, as the Dutch love a good deal. That’s all from me for now. When in Amsterdam, do remember to visit the Moco Museum.
