A great day trip from Amsterdam especially
on a sunny day, is the Kroller-Muller Museum. Possibly the best museum
in Holland, it has a splendid setting. It's located inside the Nationaal
Park de Hoge Veluwe, a nature preserve an hours drive from Amsterdam. Since
cars are banned from the park, you must either take a bus to the museum
or you can ride one of the many free bikes available, or have a pleasant
walk. The park is graced with miles and miles of wonderful bike paths,
foot paths and horse trails.
of the museum is a great collection of 278 paintings by Vincent Van Gogh,
including those pictured here. The corridors are also filled with
works by Picasso, Manet, Matisse, Mondrian and many more. Behind the museum
is the 27 acre sculpture garden, filled with statuary and sculptures from
this century. Some
of the pieces are huge, others light as a feather and floating around on
reflecting ponds. The colors, the textures and the shapes are truly amazing.
Plan on bringing a picnic lunch and enjoying a wonderful day of culture
and art in a wooded park.
