The story of Amsterdam, your entry to the city
Amsterdam: a world city? Yes, but also small, quaint and strong-minded. Home to Johan Cruijff, Rembrandt, Ajax, the Red Light District, the Dutch East India Company and marijuana. The capital of the Netherlands. A 1000-year-old trading city that has a special relationship with water and a strong focus on entrepreneurship, creativity, citizenship and free-thinking. In the monumental Amsterdam Museum building you will discover the story of Amsterdam through a large number of masterpieces, such as an aerial map from the Middle Ages, Breitner's The Dam and a lesson on anatomy from Rembrandt. See, read about, hear and experience how the city has developed in the Amsterdam Museum.
