Must visit museums in Amsterdam

According to the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards, the Rijksmuseum, along with the Van Gogh Museum, are among the top 25 museums of the world. They are both conveniently located at Museum square (Museumplein). So even if you visit Amsterdam for one day, it’s easy to combine a visit.

The Rijksmuseum is big enough to spend the whole day here. We recommend to start your visit with the The Gallery of Honour. Here you will find The Night Watch by Rembrandt, Vermeer’s paintings and other Dutch masterpieces by the great artists of the 17th century.

Hidden treasures – museums in Amsterdam canal houses

How about visiting a 17th century canal-side mansion? Once homes for the wealthy Amsterdammers, some canal houses are now open to the public as museums. Here are some of them: Museum of the canals (Herengracht 386), Museum Willet-Holthuysen (Herengracht 605), FOAM museum of photography (Keizersgracht 609).

Another great museum has been a real Amsterdam’s secret for almost two centuries! Our Lord in the Attic Museum (Oudezijds Voorburgwal 38 – 40, in the middle of the the Red Light district), a typical 17th century house with a hidden secret: a chapel that served as a Catholic church for over 200 years.

On Dam Square

What about a royal experience? Royal Palace Amsterdam (Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 147, Dam square) is actually still used for King Willem-Alexander’s official receptions. But when not used by the royal family, the palace is open for visitors. Check if it’s open on the days of your visit >>

The building to the right from the Royal palace is the New Church (Nieuwe kerk). It often hosts wordl-famous photo and art exhibitions and events. Check out the agenda!
