I'm not too sure of all the other businesses but I know there is a restaurant, cheese shop and clothing shops inside this mid-sized mall - Magna Plaza, which include stands providing services. I had tunnel vision only for one thing on visiting Magna Plaza. I actually came here for the Re:mbrandt - All his paintings exhibit on the lower level. If anyone is into art, this is well worth an hour or so of ones time. I came here on a weekend afternoon and there were barely any visitors. It was like three others and myself. The Re:mbrandt exhibit is on the lower level in the Magna Plaza and there is a giftshop with overpriced souvenirs like books, overpriced umbrellas and bags in the shape of a Tulip for 200 or so Euros as example of what's for sale.
The exhibit info can be fount at their website: rembrandtallhispaintings…
Anyway, the artwork on display is supposedly remastered, and each one is vivid in it's contrast and angle. If Rembrandt painted like what's on display, I can see why he is a master. The color in shading is apparent in lightness to prevalence. The dimensions in his artwork is life like. The exhibit says "all" his work is here but I can't account on that. All I can say is that there is a large number of his pieces on display here. They are basically framed in rolls and aisles on a colored board like, drywall. There is lighting above each and with it's dark and lamp like lighting it creates a perfect tone for each painting.
If you're into art or images of history, like me, particularly the 1600s in this case, well worth learning a few things from a master.
This is a good little shopping spot but there are noticeably quite a few empty spaces. The highlight was Sissy-Boy's downstairs in the basement. Easy to miss if you aren't looking. Lot's of nifty home wares and some nice basic clothing pieces.
The best shopping mall in Amsterdam (not taht there are that many to pick from though). A bit upmarket with some stores carrying high end brands like Dsquared but also more normal priced (but still more expensive than your average fashionbrand) such as G-star, Juicy Couture and Replay.
