Best Time to Visit the MoCo Museum
The MoCo museum experiences peak crowds on weekends from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Those who prefer to have a quieter visit should plan their trip outside these hours. The museum’s proximity to major attractions such as the Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum makes it a popular place for tourists. As such, visitors should book their tickets online in advance so they can avoid the often long lines for purchasing tickets on-site.
Guests must wear comfortable casual clothes and carry an umbrella as rain is abundant and random in Amsterdam. There are several temporary exhibitions and displays at the MoCo Museum and visitors can check out their website to find out more.
