Amsterdam Museum


Saturday is INTERNATIONAL Museum of the Day, and today’s museum stands out as one of the best interpretive museums I’ve ever visited. It’s been several years since my visit to Amsterdam, but I still recall how wonderful and robust the exhibits were at this wonderful little museum.

Amsterdam’s city museum is a wonderful meeting place for Amsterdammers and THE museum for Dutch people wanting to learn more about their capital. Amsterdam Museum tells the story of the city of Amsterdam: its past, present and future.

Amsterdam Museum Amsterdam: a world city? Yes, but also small, quaint and strong-minded. Home to Johan Cruijff, Rembrandt, Ajax, the Red Light District, the Dutch East India Company and marijuana. The capital of the Netherlands. A 1000-year-old trading city that has a special relationship with water and a strong focus on entrepreneurship, creativity, citizenship and free-thinking. In the monumental Amsterdam Museum building you will discover the story of Amsterdam through a large number of masterpieces, such as an aerial map from the Middle Ages, Breitner’s The Dam, a lesson on anatomy from Rembrandt, the Witkar and a portrait of Theo van Gogh. See, read about, hear and experience how the city has developed in the Amsterdam Museum.
