JAN and JAN

As of January 2020, Museum Jan van der Togt continues under the name Museum JAN. JAN obviously refers to the museum’s founder Jan van der Togt. But JAN also refers to someone else: Jan Verschoor. He was Van der Togt’s consultant and is the museum’s co-founder and former director. In addition, he is an artist whose works are part of the museum’s permanent collection.

The museum was built around Verschoor’s house on the Dorpsplein (Village Square) in Amstelveen and he still lives there! From the museum, visitors can walk into Verschoor’s living room and admire his art collection.
