Art by Armando
After coffee at De Veldkeuken why not pop across to the MOA (Museum Oud Amelisweerd)? At this museum on the Oud Amelisweerd estate there are three collection on display: te work of artist Armando, the history of the estate itself and unique Chinese and other historic wall hangings.
The Old Amelisweerd had been uninhabited for a long time until 2012 when it was acquired by the Oud Amelisweerd Museum Foundation. Utrecht City Council renovated the manor and coach house and it has been a ‘house of art in the country’, as the MOA puts it, ever since. Wandering through this lovely listed building, you can marvel at a large Armando collection and 18th and 19th-century wall decorations, focusing on Chinese wall hangings brought to the Netherlands by the Dutch East India Company.
Nice to know
