The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam’s premier modern art is undergoing a big renovation. According to their website it will reopen at the end of 2009.
It’s already been in the temporary location near central station for about two years. The full collection is not on display, but you can still see rotating exhibitions – such as “The Best Designed Books” which is on until the end of September.
Apparently serious work – putting in piles on the museumplein side will begin after summer – but they’ve just blocked off the footpath in preparation for construction. It’s the first visible sign of the renovations.
