About Moco | Moco Museum

If you are planning your next visit to Amsterdam, you want to visit places that are unique, interesting, but most of all fun. You may think that museums can’t be fun, but once you visit the Moco Museum, you will find out that you are wrong. You can find this particular museum in the world-famous Museumplein square. Why is this square world-famous? Because it is the home place of some of the Amsterdam’s most famous museums. The Moco was founded in 2016 with the mission to offer varied art to its visitors. In fact, it is the only Amsterdam museum that changes some of its exhibits every year, to offer something fresh and different. If you thought museums were spaces that always show the same thing, you know there is a museum you can visit every year and stumble upon something new.

Art that will nourish your mind

If you think about it carefully, you’ll discover that each museum has its personality. Likewise, the art displayed in each of these museums was inspired by different factors. When you visit a museum, you have to be able to fill your mind with creativity and new approaches. Art is designed to change people’s perceptions of a particular situation. For example, Banksy’s “Love is in the Air (Flower Thrower)” can make one person understand that violence leads to nothing and that there are better ways to resolve differences in society. When a museum succeeds in changing the way people think, it not only becomes a space for recreation but also provides society with positive energy. Keep this in mind when planning the museums you want to visit.

A museum connected to technology

Technology is present in people’s lives. Whether you use your cell phone to check your bank account or your computer to do your grocery shopping, technology helps us do things more effectively. Museums like Moco offer a unique experience by implementing augmented reality technology in their exhibits. What has augmented reality all about? Imagine pointing your cell phone camera at a QR code located next to an art exhibit and, out of nowhere, more information or an image appears that you can only see on your cell phone. With this technology, museums can offer a virtual experience while people visit their facilities physically. This hybrid method allows users to access useful information about each piece of art in a matter of seconds. You will be able to enjoy every piece of art without any problems.
