Due to the renovation of its main location on Kalverstraat, the Amsterdam Museum opened its doors to its new temporary venue on Amstel on March 9th. Serving as a testing ground for the revamped museum, set to officially open in mid-2025, the location showcases an experimental collection presentation designed by architectural studio Studio LA, along with three rotating exhibitions. The museum’s ambitions to have an open perspective towards the city, its residents, and history, using innovative approaches, are evident in these displays. The program highlights the museum’s renowned collection alongside a focus on contemporary artists and creators, co-creation, and decolonization.
