Term Definition
Museumplein

The Museumplein (English: Museum Square) is a square in the borough Amsterdam South in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Located at the square are three major museums - the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, and Stedelijk Museum - and the concert hall Concertgebouw.[1] The area was the location of the International Colonial and Export Exhibition in 1883. The square was reconstructed in 1999. The design of the new Museumplein is by the Swedish/Danish landscape architect Sven-Ingvar Andersson. It includes underground parking spaces and an underground supermarket. In the winter, the pond can be transformed into an artificial ice skating area.
