The 25 most beautiful museums in Amsterdam

Amsterdam 25 museums worth seeing | Typical Amsterdam is, first and foremost, the famous waterways, along which the narrow canal houses are lined up. Then come cheese, tulips, bicycles, clogs, or klompen as they are called here. Add the bicycles, cannabis, and fricandels with tasty fries, and you have a likeable Amsterdam.

But of course, the city cannot be reduced to all of this. For many tourists, the main attractions in Amsterdam include the city’s numerous museums. With over 60 museums, the canal city has the highest density of museums in the world. Many of the exhibitions have become famous far beyond the country’s borders.

Tips for visiting the museum

Before I introduce you to 25 museums worth visiting, here are a few tips to remember when planning your visits. Many exhibition buildings can only sell limited tickets for a specific time slot due to the constantly high number of visitors. It can be unpleasant if the planned visit cannot occur as planned.

✅ So get the right online tickets in advance. This avoids unpopular waiting times. This is also in the interest of the city of Amsterdam, which is why tickets on-site are not cheaper.

Exploring the various museums is expensive. You can only get discounts with a suitable discount card. My suggestion would be the I Amsterdam City Card. It offers free or discounted admission to many museums. Use of all public transport is free, and the obligatory canal cruise is also included in the card’s price.

Without exception, all the museums mentioned are worth a visit. Unfortunately, you cannot take photos everywhere in the exhibition rooms. So ask in advance. Otherwise, the museum shops always offer a wide choice of unique souvenirs.

1. Rijksmuseum

Visitors are introduced to the exciting world of science through hands-on experiments and demonstrations. The architecture of the building in which the museum is located is also impressive.

Madame Tussauds Amsterdam offers lifelike replicas, elaborate backdrops, music, and modern animation technology that surprises many.

Of course, all the significant celebrities are represented. Whether Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, or the Incredible Hulk, everyone can meet their idol here – even if only as a wax version.

This museum is different but exciting! Do you consider Graffiti to be Art? Is it a form of painting?

In this museum, you can see various styles, shapes, techniques, and messages, as told through the most significant art movement of our time: street art. You’ll find a giant multicolored portrait of Anne Frank on the building’s exterior. The size of the painting hasn’t been sacrificed; their canvases remain original, as do the stories and timelines that brought the artists’ work here.

Visiting the Straat Museum isn’t just a passive observation of Art – it’s an interactive journey in which you can admire the work of some of the most talented graffiti artists in the world.

The exhibition includes numerous models and original artefacts and is one of the most essential shipping and shipping history collections.

The Anne Frank House is a place steeped in history. This house was the hiding place of Anne Frank and her family during the persecution of the Jews by the Nazi regime. She wrote her famous diary here. Before the hiding place was discovered, the Jews in hiding were deported, and almost all of them were murdered. Today, the house is both a museum and a memorial. Visitors to the premises are given a touching insight into how the people in hiding had to live here.

The original diary and several other personal items are also on display. In addition, there are changing exhibitions on topics such as racism and anti-Semitism, and this unique, thought-provoking place is popular with visitors to Amsterdam and undoubtedly worth a visit.

Royal Palace

Visitors to Amsterdam should take advantage of the Royal Palace. Fans of the royal celebrities will get their money’s worth here, as will those interested in history or architecture. The Royal Palace is one of the residences of the Dutch royal family, but they only rarely use it on special, official occasions.

The royal palace is usually empty and open to the public. Visitors can marvel at the magnificent furnishings and historical flair of the castle. We recommend participating in one of the guided tours, which occur several times daily and provide lots of exciting information about the palace and the royal family. Concerts and exhibitions are often organised in the Royal Palace, especially in summer.

16. Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum

Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum

Amsterdam is known as a mecca for cannabis users, so it is no surprise that there is also a hemp museum here. However, this museum is by no means only of interest to passionate coffee shop visitors; it also offers a comprehensive and exciting overview of hemp.

Around 12,000 exhibits show how versatile the plant is and what significance it has had and still has for mankind. Not only is its use as a medicinal plant and intoxicant covered, but also its agricultural and industrial use and the political significance of the plant. The Hemp Museum is therefore home to a thoroughly serious, informative exhibition – but it is entertaining nonetheless.

The museum is appropriately located in a remarkably well-preserved canal house on the Herengracht Canal and provides information about the history and development of the historic canal belt.

After the end of the colonial era, the exhibition was expanded to include other tropical regions, and the museum was given an ethnological focus. Today, the aim is to inform and promote cultural interaction.

Development education on topics such as poverty and exploitation is also covered. The museum’s extensive collection comprises around 175,000 objects of various kinds and is presented in several rooms with a different regional focus.

Nieuwe Kerk

The late Gothic church was built in the 15th century in the neighbourhood of the Royal Palace and has been altered and restored several times since then. Despite its designation as a new church, it is several hundred years old.

When the church is not used for royal weddings or coronations, it is open to visitors and is used for exhibitions on various themes.
