This museum was a disappointment. It seems that conceptual arts have ceased to shock or challenge or engage the viewer in a meaningful narrative - all we are left with are tired cliches, white walls, babbling videos and inconsequential artifacts.

The concept of conceptual art is perfectly clear to me, but during the famous Amsterdam MuseumNight De Appel did not had a clear proposition regarding modern art. There weren't any description available on the art shown and it was really, really to conceptual.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
