Tumultuous and highly coloured, the history of Amsterdam certainly warranted its own museum. I enjoy visiting the Amsterdams Historisch Museum to learn a little more about this fascinating capital city. The site also includes a number of 17th century houses, making it a little architectural gem in its own right.


Everyday life through the centuries

With a chronological layout, the route through the museum retraces the life of the citizens of Amsterdam through different periods, allowing the objects to evoke many traditions and customs. In an original way, the museum retraces the extraordinary evolution of a city that changes from a simple fishing village into a capital city on a world scale with all its accompanying pleasures. Built on the foundations of an ancient convent dating from 1414, it combines several buildings of rare beauty.
A coffee break in Mokum The museum is visually very rich and contains a wealth of information, and so I allow myself a break in Mokum – its adjoining café – after each visit. Their cappuccinos are excellent.
Open Monday to Friday from 10.00 to 17.00 , Saturdays and Sundays 11.00 to 17.00.

Romain, 35 ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

I love Amsterdam's open spirit. It's easy to meet people and have rich, interesting conversations. The heart of the city is bubbling over with cultural initiatives, secret restaurants and nature routes that relax you in no time. I want to share it all with you!
