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!

400 year old mansion
Aug 2019 • Couples
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.

Multiple expositions
Aug 2019 • Friends
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.

Museum Jan van der Togt;a small museum featuring Glass and Contemporary Art
Mar 2019 • Friends
"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.

Small but always worth a visit

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.

Hidden gem in Amstelveen
Sep 2017 • Friends
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 !

Wonderful hidden gem
Jun 2015 • Solo
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

Art gallery bigger and better than I was expecting, in Amstelveen old town
Aug 2014 • Friends
The Museum Van der Togt is located in the old town from Amstelveen. I have seen it from distance for a long time. When I decided to visited with a friend, I was surprised that the museum is bigger than I thought (many rooms, 2 levels) and has a nicer collection than I thought.

The museum has a permanent collection mostly on glass and some paintings collected by Jan van der Togt, one of the founders. The other founder vas Jan Verschoor who made interesting sculptures also in the permanent collection.

When I visited there was an exhibition with many paintings from Japanese artists and a special exhibition with the nice work from the Dutch illustrator Cees Bantzinger.

It was interesting to know that the founder that gives the name to the museum was also the founder of the kitchen appliances company called TOMADO and at the beginning, the collection was exhibited in Dordrecht, where the company has its headquarters, later being transferred to the current location.

My friend and I discovered in our visit that the museum rent rooms for meetings which are very nice considering the environment. The gallery can also be rented for independent exhibitions.

The museum´s shop sells mostly glass works of high quality.
