TheUpside Down Museum was co-founded in 2020 by influencer Anna Nooshin with the aim of discovering modern Dutch culture in a playful, fun and unique way. In this interactive museum, visitors set the rules for spending a few hours of pure fun in the company of friends or family.
The Upside Down Museum is a site covering 1,500 square metres and houses around 25 different settings that have as their common denominator the theme ‘the new Holland’. The rooms here have been designed ‘upside down’, i.e. so that visitors believe they are upside down. Thanks to this particular conformation, the site wants to tell the story of contemporary modern Holland in an entertaining and curious way, changing the often stereotypical image that describes this nation as the land of clogs and mills, when in fact there is also much more to discover.
Room after room, the route allows visitors to delve into contemporary Dutch culture by passing through special environments such as an ice bath, an Amsterdam metro carriage, a ‘silent’ disco, the cabin of a private jet and many others. At the end of the tour is the café-bar where the famous freakshake is served, i.e. a large chocolate milkshake topped with cream and other sweets such as biscuits, candies and waffles.
Tickets for the museum extravaganza can be purchased online at a lower price than at the museum ticket office.
