Some of Amsterdam’s better-known museums and cultural venues are located in Museumplein (meaning Museums’ Square in Dutch), widely regarded as one of Europe’s most important cultural districts, together with Exhibition Road in London, Berlin’s Museuminsel, Vienna’s MuseumQuartier, and the Barrio de Las Letras in Madrid; world-renowned museums located there include the Stedelijk, the Rijksmuseum, and the Van Gogh Museum.
Yet, we suggest curious travelers take their time to explore also the less touristic neighborhoods of this fascinating city; thus, you may discover magnificent museums – of art, cinema, history, science, and design – overlooking quiet canals and riverfronts; Amsterdam is not called Venice of the North by chance, after all.
