While Simon and Lenny catch their eye, their children Juno and Raul hop on a mount by Christoph Coppins. “They clearly thought of the kids, which is very nice. Other museums can learn from that,” Lenny laughs.

One visit gives you a lot of superficial impressions. But hey, It’s not bad at all. We are happy to open the museum again, they have outdone themselves.”

However, not everyone is equally enthusiastic. Although she hasn’t visited all the rooms yet, Detty’s first impression of the room with Modern Masters isn’t immediately very positive. “a white cube It could be cool, but that’s really too white. Art without context is not always bad, but now I feel that works are losing their beauty due to their lack. It’s all pretty much the same, and it’s so overwhelming.”

Elma Dalhuijsen-Neuss, who has made a name for herself as Tanti Cat, understands Ditty, but is still very excited about the museum. “You’re a nuisance if you don’t like this. I’m so glad the museum is open again. I have a museum pass, so I’ll undoubtedly pass by regularly and take my time to thoroughly explore each room. Long live KMSKA.”
