I enjoyed the museum. It has a vast collection of beautiful glass objects, a present exhibition of Sam Francis' paintings along with sculptures. An exhibition of excellent Fashion by Piet Paris. The Museum is placed in a beautiful old centre of Amstelveen

Not too large, but still spacious with nice collection of glass works as well as changing contemporary exhibitions. Nicely located in the old town center.

Since the Herman Brood exhibition some years ago, we haven't been back, but we'll be back more often! The Sparnaay food exhibition is spectacular, but also the standard exhibits (like the glass dept) are great!

The Van Loon mansion is one of the grandiose houses lining the Kaizeragracht overlooking the canal.
The museum is housed over 3 floors with an attic,carriage house and garden to boot. The kitchen is particularly interesting.
The building is crammed full of portraits and ornate wallpaper too much to take in and while these are interesting in themselves less is better than more.

Hurry up: splendid rare work of the famous Dutch artist Klaas Gubbels with a tiny outreach of his work in surrounding streets.
This exposition will end on the 25the og August 2019 so: hurry up.
But there come other carefully selected artists there and an exceptional permanent exposition of outstanding glass, as well as mobiles are permanent there. The Van Der Togt is located in Amstelveen (close to Amsterdam) and not far from the Cobra-museum.
Entrée is free with the Dutch Museumcard.

"Almost unreal;Willem van Veldhuizen" is the current expo at this museum;the museum is larger than it looks from outside and is was not very busy.Museum Jan van der Togt offers modern art and the museum is situated next to the historic Amstelveen village church in an area that still feels like a village.The collection is small ,featuring glass objects and modern sculptures and paintings.I enjoyed my brief visit,MJK free,otherwise expensive entry fee for the few object and paintings you get to see.

Third visit for me here and again it was a pleasant visit in this modern and pretty museum building.
The special for Lita Cabellut's work (till end of january 2019) is well done. There was enough space in the museum rooms to watch her huge works from the right distance.

Besides these always beautiful and interesting temporary exhibitions there are always a lot of items of their vast an unique glass objects collection on display. Also the museum shop offers a lot of interesting modern glass objects for sale.

Friendly staff, free lockers. There is a free parking lot nearby.

Well worth visiting if you are in or around Schiphol ( airport area) /Amsterdam with some hours to spare and an artistic "bent". It's a small museum with frequently changing edgy exhibitions. Currently it's a 3 oktober 2017 until 7 january 2018 overview of the works of Ans Markus. They have beautiful glass and metal atrwork collections. In the Old Village ( Oude Dorp) of Amstelveen near to the church on the square ( now a medical centre) surrounded by restaurants, coffee shops et al. So if you have time to spare ..or just the inclination well worth a visit. There's a 2 Michelin Star Restaurant just a short walk away and many other excellent venues. From Schiphol Bus 300 direction Bijlmemeer Arena, get out at Amstelveen bus station. Get on the 149 at the bus station Amstelveen direction KLM Hoofdkantoor( HQ)..get off at the Radhuis ( Town Hall) and you are as good as there. 149 where you got off takes you back to the Bus Station Amstelveen. It's all in walking distance if you are in that mood :) Enjoy !

I was in Amstelveen visiting the CoBrA Museum, and had read about this Museum but wasn't sure what to expect. It is a 10 minute walk along a canal in a very lovely area of Amstelveen. I was delightfully surprised. The Museum has an extensive glass art collection, and also featured an exhibition by Kees de Waal and Piet van Riel. On the 2nd floor, there is also an outdoor exhibit of sculptures. I spent a delightful hour looking over the collection, and the beautiful objects they had for sale in their store. Going to the 2 museums is definitely worth the 40 minute trip to Amstelveen. Best way to get there is the 170 or 172 bus from Amsterdam. Get off at the Amstelveen main bus station. The CoBrA Museum is right across the street, and the Museum Jan van der Togt is a 10 minute walk. You can also take the #5 tram to the end. It is then a 10 minute walk through a large shopping center to the CoBrA Museum
