Due to time constraints we have not been able to see everything, so we go back again. Lots of information about authors of now and from the past and the universal aspect in all their books, manifests, and also images. Great, in one word!
Located in one of the most beautiful buildings along the Amsterdam canals. There's a nice café on the ground floor and the "embassy"/museum houses a collection of old books, artifacts, wall displays and art, as well as work tables for research and reading. The Museumkaart covers the entrance fee and even if you're not interested i the subject matter of this "embassy", it's worth while to come in and have a look at this historic house from the Golden Age, circa early 1600's.
This is one of the worst museums I have ever been to in Europe. The "Embassy" is built up like this: There are four rooms with lot's of random drawings at the wall. In each room there's a guide book that kind of explains what you see in the drawings. However, they don't put the drawings into context. You get no understanding of why this drawing is important, what the artist thought and especially not how this is related to the "free mind". Considering the entry price (12ish €), this is clearly nothing more than a tourist trap.
