This is a well curated museum about the history of the city of Amsterdam, from founding to current day. Very modern setup and easy to follow.

We left this museum to the last day of our visit, but we wished we had started here. If you are interested in the history and development of Amsterdam, then this is a great starting point. You do need to allow 3-4 hours to see...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
