Amsterdam Museum

The story of Amsterdam – your entry to the city!

Amsterdam Museum

Amsterdam, a metropolis? Yes, and also small, friendly and unconventional. The city of Johan Cruijff, Rembrandt, Ajax, the Red Light District, the United East India Company and marijuana. The capital of the Netherlands. A 1000-year-old commercial city on the water, where entrepreneurship, creativity, citizenship and freedom all meet the eye. In the ancient monument that is the Amsterdam Museum you can see, read, hear and taste how the city came about and why it was – and still is – what it is.

Amsterdam DNA
In less than an hour the Amsterdam DNA presentation offers a fascinating and concise
overview of the history of Amsterdam through interactive images, sound, movement and
specially chosen objects.
