The Golden Ram returns to the Royal Stables this week –

Thousands of people had the opportunity to see Gouden Koets in real life in the Amsterdam museum last weekend. The coach will return to the Royal Stables in The Hague next week.

For the time being, the Amsterdam Museum was last visited in the Burgerweeshuis on Kalverstraat. The building will be renovated in the coming years and the museum will therefore move into its own wing in the Ermitage aan de Amstel.

On Saturday 5 March, the Amsterdam Museum will open its temporary housing doors. Next week, employees will move part of the collection to the Hermitage.

Judikje Kiers, director of the Amsterdam museum, is not gloomy despite the long closure. “We had an incredible amount of people upstairs, the mood was really happy. We can count ourselves lucky with our temporary accommodation, which is as large as the Burgerweeshuis in terms of surface area.”

The museum is to reintegrate the Burgerweeshuis on Kalverstraat in 2025. “It would be nice if the reopening coincides with Amsterdam’s 750th anniversary,” says the director.

It is not yet clear whether the Golden Coach will return to the museum. Kiers said, ‘It’s up to the king to decide. He said he will not be driving the car on Prinsjesdag for the time being, so who knows what will happen with that,” he said.
