Hermitage Amsterdam

The Hermitage Amsterdam is the Dutch branch of the world-famous Hermitage in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Located on the banks of the Amstel River, the Hermitage Amsterdam is an exhibition space and cultural education centre with a focus on Russian history and culture.


The Rijksmuseum is one of Amsterdam's grandest museums. Designed by renowned Dutch architect P.J.H. Cuypers, this monumental building's construction began in 1876, and it finally opened in 1885 as the largest museum in the Netherlands. On November 1, 2014, the museum expanded with the opening of the new Philips Wing.

Van Gogh Museum

Opened on Museumplein in 1973, the Van Gogh Museum is one of the most popular museums in the world, attracting visitors from every corner of the globe. This is in large part due to it housing the largest collection of works by Vincent van Gogh - more than 200 paintings, 500 drawings and 700 of his letters.

Anne Frank House

Anne Frank is one of Amsterdam's most well-known former residents. The Anne Frank House at Prinsengracht 263 in Amsterdam is where she lived in hiding with her family for more than two years during World War II. Look into the life of Anne Frank according to the extensive diary she wrote while in hiding.


In 1687, Albert Geelvinck commissioned the construction of the Geelvinck Hinlopen Huis to celebrate his marriage to the much younger Sara Hinlopen. Geelvinck came from a very wealthy family, and his private canal mansion now houses the opulent Museum Geelvinck. Enter through the former coach house and the lush secluded garden to experience the hidden wealth of Amsterdam's former Bourgeois elite.


Foam is an internationally renowned museum that exhibits all genres of photography in a beautiful canal-side setting. In addition to displaying a wide variety of works, it acts as a creative hub where photographers can meet and participate in forums and symposiums.

Smelik en Stokking Galleries

This high-end Dutch Gallery has several shops throughout the Netherlands. The galleries represent almost one hundred national and international sculptors and painters.

Nieuwe Spiegelstraat

The Nieuwe Spiegelstraat and the Spiegelgracht are at the heart of the Amsterdam art district, the Spiegelkwartier. The street is named after the extremely influential Spiegel family. Hendrik Laurensz Spiegel (1549-1612) was one of the great thinkers and writers of the 16th century. Spiegel, the son of a rich merchant and soap maker, prepared the first grammar rules for the Dutch language. One of his sons, Hendrick Dircksz Spiegel, who lived from 1598 through 1667, was burgomaster of Amsterdam in 1655, 1659, 1663 and 1665

Nowadays it's almost door-to-door art and antiques dealers. Often recognized as the driveway of the Rijksmuseum, many people visit the street to gasp at - or purchase great art.
