Rijksmuseum
#1 of 172 Museums in Amsterdam
Our artistic teenage daughter loved every moment and my not-so-wild-about-museums husband equally enjoyed our time there because Lora was an art expert who could present in a friendly, engaging, accessible style.
The Rijksmuseum is indeed 'rich' - filled with incredible artworks, sculptures, antiquities and beautiful architecture (inside + out), it is also a marvel of modern museums.

Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder
#5 of 172 Museums in Amsterdam
One of the best, historical museums of Amsterdam.
The museum audio tour is excellent and they make it easy by using a listening device where you activate the story in each room, (like the Ann Frank House).
Amsterdam Pipe Museum

We are already big fans of Amsterdam's small museums, and on our latest visit we added one more to the collection.

Moco Museum - Banksy & more
#9 of 172 Museums in Amsterdam
A small museum displaying works by 2 of our favourite artists, Banksy and Dali, a bonus to our visit to the other museums.
If I’m honest, I highly dislike art museums and galleries but this one was a different class, its layout was organised, structured and very enjoyable.

Museum Het Rembrandthuis (Rembrandt House)
#11 of 172 Museums in Amsterdam
Unlike other museums around, this one is more of a historical stop and it is quite interesting (especially as an art history minor) to see the original house where Rembrant's studio and business thrived.
This house where Rembrandt lived and worked is really worth seeing - his studio, paintings and living rooms are so atmospheric and give a much more intimate feel to the larger museums.

Willet-Holthuysen Museum
#14 of 172 Museums in Amsterdam
We've covered a large number of museums in Amsterdam and so far this is the best for us and will be for you if you love social history.
House museums aren't for everyone.Some people look at each room in such places and are gone in half an hour but if you love furniture, china, period design, and jewel -type gardens this is a great place to go.

The museum itself is like a work of art - amazing modern cabinets, beautifully lit, housing an incredible collection of Victorian bell jars containing curious, amazing anatomical specimens.
Dutch Costume Museum and Dutch Costume Photo Studio
#16 of 172 Museums in Amsterdam
This Museum offers a wonderful break from the art museums and can be enjoyed in an hour - a perfect bit of immersion into the traditional Dutch way of life.

Museum Het Schip
#21 of 172 Museums in Amsterdam
One of the things about a city like Amsterdam is that there are many famous, high profile attractions, and other, possibly more individual museums don’t get the publicity they deserve.
One of the newer museums in Amsterdam is this previous social apartment complex.

Hermitage Amsterdam
#22 of 172 Museums in Amsterdam
As with many museums in Amsterdam, The Hermitage is quite interesting with many examples of art works by local artists of the 18th and 19th centuries.
Small charge for entry with a Museumkaart - 2.50 euros so well worth getting a Museumkaart if you are planning to visit 3 museums, even in a weekend.
