History of Moco Museum

Moco Museum Amsterdam was established in 2016 with the goal of showcasing iconic works by well-known modern and contemporary artists, as well as rising stars.

The Amsterdam museum is located in Villa Alsberg, a mansion overlooking Museumplein, between the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum.

In Barcelona, Moco Museum opened its second branch in 2021 in a 16th-century palace in the midst of the El Born district. Palau Cervelló was originally the private residence of the noble Cervelló family until the 18th century and is located in the then-prominent Carrer Montcada.

Since the opening of the Moco Museum, Barcelona has gained a museum where you can view and immerse yourself in the art of contemporary artists from around the world, attracting many visitors.
