The Netherlands’ most important museum for modern and contemporary art was in a coma for an unexpected eight years, but is now open to the public. The entrance has moved from the street to the park side, which means that the cultural living room of Amsterdam now has its own chill-out and meeting area outside. Moreover, this square will function as an outdoor exhibition space. The addition of a new building has doubled the size of the museum and the Stedelijk is now the proud owner of the largest exhibition space in Holland. It has no windows, which makes this 1100m2 area also suitable for displaying digital and video art. The interior of the old and new buildings have been completely integrated, so you'll hardly notice where the 100-year-old edifice ends and the modern one begins. If you lose your bearings just remember that the old part houses the permanent collections, while the new building exhibits temporary work.
