The Cobra Museum is open 7 days a week from 1 June from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Timeslot tickets are available via this page.


When will the Cobra Museum reopen?
The Cobra Museum opens its doors again on Monday June 1 (Whit Monday). From then on you are most welcome with an online ticket!

Will the Exhibition This is Surrealism! Cobra & Surrealism and the Amstelveen Triennial be on display?
Yes! The exhibition This is Surrealism! The Boijmans Masterpieces and the adjacent presentation Surrealism & Cobra plus the Amstelveen Triennial will continue.

How do I get access to the museum?
We work with walk-in hours to ensure an optimal spread of visitors. Access is only possible with an online ticket. This also applies to holders of the Museum Card and other membership cards. Amstelveen students with a student voucher must also book in advance. Spontaneous visits are unfortunately not possible for the time being.

I have a Museum card, a membership card, BankGiroLoterij card, a student voucher or another discount card or entrance ticket. Do I also need to book an online ticket?
Yes you do. Only in this way can we ensure an optimal spread of visitors. Take your Museum card, free ticket or membership card with you to the museum!

Can I come by spontaneously and buy an entrance ticket at the box office?
Unfortunately this is not possible for the time being. You can only access the museum with a pre-booked online ticket.

When can I buy an online ticket?
Online ticket sales will start soon! Keep an eye on the website!

Do I have to pay a supplement for the exhibition This is Surrealism ! The Boijmans Masterpieces.?
Yes, the supplement is € 5. The exhibition offers a wonderful, very precious selection of works of art. This surcharge is necessary to cover the exceptional costs.


What is a walk-in hour?
By working with walk-in hours, we can optimally spread the amount of visitors over the day and in the spaces. In this way we ensure a completely safe environment for your museum visit. You can enter during your entire walk-in hour, and you can stay in the museum for as long as you want. To avoid queues at the entrance, we ask you to come to the museum no earlier than the start of your walk-in hour.

What are the walk-in hours?
Especially for this exceptional exhibition and the restrictive measures, we also open on Mondays, so we are open seven days a week! The walk-in hours are: 11:00 -12: 00
12:00 -13: 00
13:00 -14: 00
14:00 -15: 00
15:00 -16: 00

What is the difference between a walk-in hour and a time slot?
Some public places work with time slots. Time slots allow you to enter at a specific time and you have a limited visit time. We deliberately do not choose that. We strive to spread the walk-in as much as possible naturally and to allow everyone to visit the museum in peace. Therefore, you can come in for an hour, when it suits you best.

How do I get to the Cobra Museum of Modern Art? — Sandbergplein 1, 1181 ZX Amstelveen.
You can park in parking garage Stadshart.

The Cobra Museum of Moderne Art is situated in a modern city. The museum is easy to be reached by bike, car and public transportation.

The Cobra Museum is a good half hour bike ride from the centre of Amsterdam. You can also take a more touristic route via the river Amstel (take a right at Café het Kalfje) or via the Amsterdam Woods (Amsterdamse Bos). This takes about an hour.

The fast route: from Amsterdam you cycle towards the Olympic Stadium. From there, follow the Amstelveenseweg, under the ring road and keep going straight until you see the museum on your left in Amstelveen. You’ve arrived.

If you come by public transport, take a Connexxion bus (the red ones).

From Amsterdam CS take the north-south metro to station Zuid. It departs every 6 minutes. From this station take bus line 358 or line 358. You can find them at the busline from Station Zuid (across the street). These frequent lines stop at the Amstelveen bus station which is only a minute’s walk to the museum.

From the Museumplein take bus 347 or 357 to the busstation Amstelveen. This will cost you about 20 minutes.

From the Leidseplein take bus 347 or 357 (at the Leidseplein Stadhouderskade stop, next to the Vondelpark entrance) to the busstation Amstelveen. his will cost you about 25 minutes.

Another option is to take tram 5 (e.g. from the Leidseplein or the Museumplein) to the final stop in Amstelveen. From there it is about a 10-minute walk through the covered citymall-Stadshart Amstelveen.

From Bijlmer Arena station or from Schiphol and Haarlem you can take bus 300. This fast bus brings you to the bus station next to the Cobra Museum in around 15 minutes. Step off at the Amstelveen bus station. It’s a two minute walk to the museum from there.

Please note! The IAmsterdam Card and a GVB transport ticket are not valid in the Connexxion buses.
