The Otherist is our version of the Cabinet of Curiosities. It's our chance to scour the globe in search of items that wow, amaze and surprise. We seek the exceptional; the memorable; the unconventional; the other.

We've gathered a collection of merchandise that highlights the talent of artists and designers from around the world and years gone by. Our focus is on the uniquely handmade, the one-of-a-kind and difficult to find... and much like the Wunderkammers of old, our collection is ever-changing and often difficult to classify. We hope to inspire others with our finds and open our doors for you to peruse our collection as you furnish your very own Cabinet of Curiosities.
A visit to the Otherist represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Amsterdam trip itinerary maker site to plot your vacation.

  • Beautiful store with extravagant articles! Definitely my Lieblingsshop in Amsterdam. Unfortunately very high-priced, plan to visit only with full wallets!

  • Really excellent gothic/romantic horror stuff in a nice space. Great selection of beetles and butterflies mounted very nicely for hanging. A bit pricey but some really fun and beautiful items.
  • Great shop to get any scientist excited, especially go check out the mechanised insects that artist Mike Libby has made!
