Really informative and interesting experience! Only thing is that in the day we visited, some exhibition were having technical issues and were not in use.

The best way to enjoy Amsterdam is through its most unique feature – the canals. Choose from an array of Amsterdam canal cruises and soak up the city's history, architecture, and fascinating views! Amsterdam boat tours offer a range of experiences for guests of all ages and interests. Choose from a morning canal cruise served with breakfast, or a leisurely day tour with your choice of pizza, BBQ, or Gouda cheese tasting. Let the captain do the steering while you enjoy a drink (or two) on a booze cruise, or book a romantic evening excursion instead. There are plenty of options! Get to know Amsterdam with an expert guide to point out historic points of interest, showcase classic photography opportunities, and share fun facts about the city. Canal tours are available in several languages and most offer audio guides. Rain or shine, these semi-covered tour boats are your ticket to experience this iconic city in true Dutch fashion.

The Heineken Experience is located in the original Heineken Brewery. Gerard Adriaan Heineken bought this building back in 1863 when it was the De Hooiberg brewery. He then turned it towards the production of his eponymous beer. The building remained a brewery all the way up to 1988. It was then that it became a museum (and hotspot for Heineken consumption). Located in the vibrant neighborhood of De Pijp, the Heineken Experience is ideally situated for a canal cruise, and some city exploration that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of Dam Square. Since 2001, it's been the world-famous Heineken Experience. After a year-long update and redesign in 2008, the Heineken Experience is more Heineken-y and Experience-y than ever before.

Madame Tussauds is located in the center of Amsterdam at the ever-busy Dam Square. Founded by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud in the 18th century, this iconic wax museum chain has locations in many cities across the globe, including London, Berlin, New York, Las Vegas, Hong Kong, and Shanghai, and of course, the Dutch capital. Madame Tussauds Amsterdam is home to hundreds of historical and royal figures, film and sports stars, and immersive themed galleries. The museum encourages an interactive approach to the wax figures – so go ahead and hug your favorite celebrity crush! Madame Tussauds has been a central fixture in Amsterdam since 1971, with its first location at the Kalverstraat, before being moved to the Dam Square, where it can't be missed – and definitely shouldn't!

The National Museum of the Netherlands, or the Rijksmuseum, has been housed on this location since 1885. It recently underwent a ten-year, €375 million renovation. The Rijksmuseum has over 5,000 paintings (including Rembrandt's Night Watch) and has an emphasis on the Dutch Golden Age. But it's not just paintings – there are sculptures, antiques, collections of clothing and weapons, and one of the finest actively-used libraries you'll ever see. The Dutch architect P.J.H. Cuypers designed this elegant building, and even put himself in the design as one of the statues on the roof.

Moco Museum

The Modern Contemporary (Moco) Museum Amsterdam is housed inside Villa Alsberg, a 1904 townhouse in the middle of Amsterdam Museumplein. High-profile guest curators and exhibitions highlight some of the modern world's best contributors to the art world. Eduard Cuypers, cousin of Rijksmuseum designer Pierre Cuypers, designed the townhouse, making it a sight to see in itself. But the work inside is absolutely phenomenal; two current attractions showcase the work of street art activist Banksy, and pop artist extraordinaire, Andy Warhol.
