Amsterdam Art and Museums

Explore Art and Museums in Amsterdam

A long-established arts and cultural mecca, Amsterdam has a prolific collection of fine art, contemporary and historical museums to enthrall any visitor. Classical art museums include Rijksmuseum, the Hermitage Amsterdam (a branch of St. Petersburg’s famous Hermitage) and the Van Gogh Museum. For contemporary art, don’t miss the renovated Stedelijk Museum OR the Nederlands Instituut voor de Mediakunst (Dutch Institute for Media Art). Be sure to explore Amsterdam’s canals, which house numerous mini-museums like the Tassenmuseum Hendrikje (bags and purses dating to the 16th century) and the Biblical Museum—one of the oldest museums in the Netherlands.

For more small-scale art experiences, go to the galleries in Spiegelkwartier to explore fine art and antiques. Amsterdam also boasts countless art festivals, including the Affordable Art Fair, the International Documentary Film Festival and PAN Amsterdam
