The Amsterdam Museum tells the story of the Dutch capital, from the Middle Ages through the Golden Age and right up to modern times. When it opened its doors in 1926 it was located in the Waag at the Nieuwmarkt. In 1975 the museum moved to its current location, just off the Kalverstraat, a building that was originally a municipal orphange. The collection is full of photos, artifacts and interactive exhibits.
