I was at Boijmans Museum


I'm 90% sure that my favorite art museum of The Netherlands is Boijmans van Beuningen museum. My first time was with my artclass back in college. Now I've been here twice.

 In my opinion I think they have great art collection and a great source of inspiration. It is a well known museum but not overcrowd as the Rijksmuseum or Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam, great varying exhibition, great activities and great coffee at the coffeebar. It's just great!

Ik ben 90% overtuigd dat Boijmans van Beuningen museum mijn favoriete museum is. Ik ben er al eerder geweest met mijn tekenklas van de middelbare school. Dit is dus mijn tweede keer. 

Ieder heeft een eigen smaak. Zo vind ik zelf dat ze goeie collectie hebben en bronnen van inspiratie. Een bekende museum maar niet giga druk als bij `t Rijksmuseum of Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. Verder hebben ze leuke wisselende tentoonstellingen, activiteiten en goeie koffie bij de koffiebar. Gewoonweg goed!

Hang your coat
A cloakroom is just a cloakroom but the one at Boijmans is the most stunning cloakroom I have ever seen and been in my life. It is actually not really a room but a ingenuity design of wires, ropes, racks, hangers and keys. You pick a rope with a number and key and you pull on it and you`ll find a hanger at the end of this rope.
You hang your coat/jacket/scarf/umbrella and once everything is hanged you heist the rope back on top, seal the rope, lock and done! Brilliant!
