Cobra Museum for 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. Take Lines 347 and 357 from Amsterdam CS, the Leidseplein or the Museumplein. These stop at the Amstelveen bus station. It is only a minute’s walk to the museum. Take a left at the ANWB shop when leaving the bus station. Please note! The IAmsterdam Card and a GVB transport ticket are not valid in the Connexxion buses.

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 Stadshart Amstelveen. Metro 51 is also a possibility from Amsterdam CS, Amsterdam Amstel and Amsterdam Zuid. Step off at the Amstelveen Centrum stop. From here it’s about a 10 minute walk from the Stadshart shopping centre.

You can take bus 300 or bus 356 from Bijlmer station or from Hoofddorp, Schiphol and Haarlem. 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 three minute walk to the museum from there.
