Formerly known as the Amsterdam History Museum, this cultural treasure trove is a must-do for anyone eager to learn about the city's rich history. Here are five reasons you can't miss it!
Not only is it easily reached in central Amsterdam, the museum is housed in an old orphanage, developed over time by the city's leading architects!
The collection of Dutch paintings is one of Amsterdam's more modest, but lesser known works from famous names like Rembrandt provide a charming alternative to the larger galleries.
Among the curios illustrating the city's past is the barrel organ damaged when hidden Nazi soldiers emerged to kill 22 in an ambush on liberation celebrations in 1945.
The former Amsterdam History Museum outgrew its old name as it began to shed more light into the city's modern culture, from cycling and prostitution to Ajax soccer fandom!
Despite being spread chronologically across three floors, a lot of knowledge can be gleaned in a short space of time due to its efficient layouts and interactive exhibits.

What People Are Saying About Amsterdam Museum
We had a lot of fun while also learning something. We always felt safe and it's one of the few tours where I managed to listen to everything starting from the beginning until the end.
We had a great time and found the canal trip very useful for accessing museums etc. Just loved the bus for its commentary and interesting sights, i would definitiely recommended this service - especially for first time visitors - a great way to see a new place on limited time and budget!!!
Very friendly staff, especially the boat driver who took us to places off his normal route and was full of interesting facts about a city which he obviously loved.
Philip was very knowledgeable and friendly. I'd recommend him to my friends who will visit Amsterdam in the future!
Our guide, Hila, was simply wonderful. Her knowledge of the city and its historic sites made for a very interesting and informative tour of this magical city called Amsterdam. The express entry tickets to the Anne Frank House were a bonus and well worth the money given the endless lines we witnessed that day and in the days prior to our tour. Highly recommend this tour!
