  • See the history of one of the world's most complex and progressive cities in a beautifully maintained 16th-century building
  • Explore the various eras of Amsterdam, from the Dutch Golden Age, to the Nazi occupation of WWII, up to its modern incarnation as a cultural capital
  • With a playable carillon, a 1960s-era eco-car, and many hands-on and interactive exhibits, it's a great indoor activity for the whole family

From the Middle Ages through the Golden Age, and right up to present day, the story of the Dutch capital is told through ancient artifacts and interactive exhibits. This delightful museum covers everything Amsterdam, and it's great for kids!

Amsterdam doesn't hide its charming canals, nor its famous vices. But to really get to know the city you want to know its history, and how it became the thriving metropolis we know today.

Housed in a former orphanage, this beautifully maintained Classicist building contains a wonderfully curated collection of paintings, photographs, models, and artifacts telling the story of Amsterdam - from its origins right up to present day.

It touches on all aspects of the city, from religion and folklore to showbiz, prostitution, and Ajax. It also includes many original orphanage furnishings, a playable carillon, an eco-car from the 1960s (the proto-Prius!) and a replica red-light district pub, where rough-and-tumble customers came to drink and 'tumble'.

Current Double Exhibtion: Ferdinand Bol and Govert Flinck Expo, at the Amsterdam Museum and the Rembrandt House Museum (Oct 13 2017 - Feb 18 2018)

Bol and Flinck were Rembrandt’s two most important pupils, but they've long been stuck in his shadow. It's time for the world to see their amazing work in this new expo, spread across the Amsterdam Museum and Rembrandt House Museum. See the Golden Age from a different angle, plus portraits and dramatic artworks based on the Bible and the Classics.

Worth a visit but I wouldn't make it a priority. Our kids enjoyed the recreation of the orphanage but this section is not really suitable for adults...

We learned a lot about Amsterdam’s history and loved using the walk along audio tour. The only reason it’s not 5 stars is that the last bit was a little confusing. There were options as to where you could go and not a tone of good signage.

Really good

It's okay. After spending the morning at the Rijks Museum, it was a bit of a let down. The Amsterdam Museum is great if your focus is on the history and development of this amazing city.

Jolie muséographie moderne et astucieuse, tout sur l'évolution d'Amsterdam à travers les âges, sa place dans le monde, la variété de ses habitants.
