Modern Contemporary (Moco) Museum is situated in Villa Alsberg, a townhouse overlooking Museumplein in the heart of Amsterdam. The building was designed in 1904 by Eduard Cuypers, nephew of the renowned Pierre Cuypers who designed Amsterdam’s Central Station and the Rijksmuseum, which is at the opposite end of the square. This privately-owned residence was one of the first family homes built along Museumplein and retained this function until 1939. Subsequently, the house was let to priests who taught at the Saint Nicolas school in Amsterdam, and later it was converted into an office for a law firm.
The appearance of this mansion is breathtaking, no effort is spared to ensure that this authentic appearance is perfectly made, making your visit to the Banksy exhibition and other exhibitions even greater. The building is charming but because of the compact size it can feel crowdy.
