Muiderpoort is a former city gate located in Amsterdam Oost, obverse of the Tropenmuseum. This monument welcomes those unfamiliar to this side of the city. Its cupola is worn; the hands of its clock have seen countless hours, days, and years; and yet this welcoming site–Classical in all its beauty–still stands, as it has proudly done, since 1771.
