It was v cool to get the ferry across the docks and to explore a new, spacious part of Amsterdam. The gallery itself is awe-inspiring. An amazing space with giant canvasses of brilliant art. If you go earlier in the day you can have the space to yourself and we were lucky enough to be able to talk to a couple of artists who were creating their pieces that morning. Such a great space and definitely worth the effort if you have any interest in art or graffiti.

Straat museum was a great experience . we all enjoyed it very much , adults and kids alike. The setting is amazing: very colorful and very interesting. I strongly recomend it . The trip by the free ferry was a nice bonus.

awesome content for younger generation, overall the art quantity is less but the quality is top notch. worthy visit

Loved all the art! It was a little cramped in there but has to be one of my favourite museums, well worth a visit!

Amazing. Good value for money and a really cool chic part of Amsterdam
