At the Rijksmuseum, art and history take on new meaning for a broad-based, contemporary national and international audience. As a national institute, the Rijksmuseum offers a representative overview of Dutch art and history from the Middle Ages onwards, and of major aspects of European and Asian art. The Rijksmuseum keeps, manages, conserves, restores, researches, prepares, collects, publishes, and presents artistic and historical objects, both on its own premises and elsewhere. (Via: Rijks)

The Hermitage Amsterdam aims to use art and history to inspire, enrich and above all offer opportunity for reflection. With our diverse exhibition and supplementary programming, the Hermitage Amsterdam presents the world heritage of one of the greatest museums – the State Hermitage in St Petersburg – to Dutch and international visitors. We take inspiration from the historical ties between Amsterdam and St Petersburg and between the House of Orange-Nassau and the Romanovs. We believe that innovation and education are essential. The Hermitage for Children offers special art education for the youngest generation. As an enterprise, we take pride in the fact that we finance our activities from our own resources, with support from the business community and private individuals. (Via: Hermitage)

The Moco museum in Amsterdam has a wide range of modern, inspiring and contemporary art that we show to the public. The competition comes nowhere near it. These artists use a lot of irony towards modern society, that is what makes them so special. Think of the artists: Banksy and Warhol. Moco provides inspiration and eye openers for all the visitors. With this, moco speaks to a wide audience. Visitors who come to the Moco museum will experience art that is nowhere to be seen but here. (Via: Moco)

In the heart of the Amsterdam canal district lies Museum Van Loon, a magnificent private residence built in 1672 by the architect Adriaen Dortsman. The first resident was the painter Ferdinand Bol, a pupil of Rembrandt. The interior of the house has remained largely intact during the last centuries and still evokes the splendor of the Golden Age. In the rooms, a large collection of paintings, fine furniture, precious silvery and porcelain from different centuries is on display. Behind the house is a beautiful garden, an oasis of quiet in the modern inner city. The garden is laid out in formal style, and is bordered on the far side by the classical façade of the coach house. This original unity of canal house, garden and coach house is nowhere else to be seen. If you want a glimpse of the world behind the façades of the world famous canals, a visit to Museum Van Loon is definitely worth your while. (Via: Van Loon)

At the beginning of the twentieth century the Rembrandt House was in a state of severe dilapidation. Few knew that the famous artist had once lived there. It was only later that people realized how important to Amsterdam this cultural inheritance was. Thorough restoration undertaken between 1908 and 1911 saved the building. From then on the house was used as a museum, where Rembrandt’s prints were exhibited. In 1998 a new, modern museum wing was added to the left of the house. The interior of the former dwelling was restored as far as possible to the style of Rembrandt’s time. The seventeenth-century furniture, objets d’art and utensils project a powerful image of Rembrandt’s possessions up to the moment he went bankrupt. (Via: Rembrandt)

The Museum of Bags and Purses developed from the private collection of Hendrikje and Heinz Ivo. In 1996, they opened the doors of their home in Amstelveen to anyone interested in admiring their collection. The museum soon became a success. Ten years later, the collection had outgrown the Amstelveen residence, daughter Sigrid Ivo had become the director and the museum had moved to a beautiful canal house in Amsterdam. The canal house is part of the UNESCO World heritage Canal Ring Area of Amsterdam.  In 2014, the museum was visited by no less than 85,000 people.
