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 Modern Art 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.
