Museums in Amsterdam

A unique city in the world.

With the highest museum density in the world, Amsterdam is best known for its tolerance to soft drugs and prostitution. But the truth is that the city is a museum itself, for its small scaled buildings, canals, people going around riding their bicycles, and also for the fact that the city mix the 17th century atmosphere with a modern mentality, what makes Amsterdam a unique city in the world.

Many people that goes to Holland's capital think that there's nothing to see and do except smoking in the Coffee shops, but if they look properly they will find an artistically fertile soil. There's a square called Museumplein (Museum Square in English) where the most important museums in Amsterdam take place, and in winter times, it becomes an ice rink. The Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum, the city's most important museum of modern art, are in the square.

To know better the history of Amsterdam, it's a good idea to visit the Amsterdam Historisch Museum, where you will see the most modern forms of multimedia to help to explain its visitors the exposed: objects, archaeological artefacts, works of art and others. The collection allow its visitors to know about the history of the city in an easy way, with the unique atmosphere of a museum exposing the ancient and old in a totally contemporary way.

But Amsterdam not only have museums of art and history, there are many unusual museums you can visit. A good example is the Cat Cabinet (Kattenkabinet), dedicated to cats. Yes, that's right, cats. The collection expresses the importance of them and their role in art culture, and even if you are not a cat person, you may like that place. Another uncommon museum is the Spectacles Museum, gown out from the passion of a collector for optometric stuff. The museum displays the history and the fashion of spectacles throughout the years, in a lovely 17th century building. Amsterdam is not only to get stoned! Go and learn something about history, art, cats and spectacles, ride bicycles, and get all you can from this top tourist destination.
