  • The Amsterdam Museum has two entrances: from the Kalverstraat 92 (entrance through the gate in the depths of the street) and Sint Luciënsteeg 27. It is a few townhouses in the very center of the city with the exposition of the Origins and later history of the city. Numerous examples of material culture together with a fully-furnished residential interior belonging to a wealthy citizen. Beautiful gallery of portraits of citizens of Amsterdam. Next to the scorers gallery. The room was very comfortable.

  • A very good introduction to the city of Amsterdam, which reconciles past and present time, middle ages and may 68, colonies spices and cannabis, past colonization and current immigration. Friendly staff.

  • Wow what a place. Definitely one of my most favorite museums I've ever visited. The giant paintings were incredible. Historic building like I've never seen before. Can't wait to visit with my family.
  • It was great that the entry was free with the Amsterdam card. The museum walks you through Amsterdam’s history and shows many different aspects of it: music, art, architecture, sport, trading, ships, bicycles, slavery etc. While it gave a lot of information about the what, i was sometimes missing the why. The exhibition is set up in a nice way, interactive and fun to walk through the maze of the building :)
