Why has the Moco Museum become so popular?


Very few cities in the world are known for having an artistic culture like Amsterdam. World-famous painters such as Vincent van Gogh and Rembrandt were born in this city. The Moco Museum is the first museum to give a different touch to the way art is exhibited in this city. It was established in 2016 with the intention of breaking with the idea that museums are boring and repetitive spaces. Its worldwide fame is due to the fact that this museum Amsterdam is the only one that exhibits art pieces that stand out for not following the common guidelines of a museum. In this museum, you can find radical art pieces such as “Freaky Mouse” by Fidia and a giant gummy bear by WhIsBe. In addition, it is one of the few museums that implement the latest technologies to make its visitors have a unique experience.

A square surrounded by museums

Museumplein is known around the world for being home to Amsterdam’s most renowned museums. Surrounding this square you can find museums such as the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk Museum. In fact, Museumplein translates as “Museum-Square”. This square is located very close to Amsterdam’s city center so it is usually the first stop for tourists visiting this city. This square received its name in 1885 after the construction of the Rijksmuseum was completed.

It is the perfect place to restore your energy after spending a few hours visiting the museums and other commercial establishments that surround this square.
