Bordered by 3 great museums, Van Gogh, the Rijks and Modern Art.... you can stroll from one museum to the other. If not mistaken, the Diamond and the Jenever Bols Museum is... More

If you plan a trip to Amsterdam Museumplein must be on the top of your "things to do/see" list. It is a very nice area with plenty things to do and see. Beside of the famous museums you can have fun at the ice skating area during winter time. We loved it! There are some restaurants and coffee shops.

There is a bunch of great museums here and it is near some authentic neighbourhoods. The architecture of the museums and the concert hall made for some great views.

This is really the heart of the museum district in Amsterdam. Here you will find the Van Gogh Museum, the wonderful Rijksmuseum and the Stedelijk Museum. You will often find long queues for the Rijksmuseum andVan Gogh - so take sometime to pop into the cafe at the Stedelijk Museum to have a drink and food and watch the world... More

The "I AMSTERDAM" sign is a photo must as you can't say you've visited Amsterdam without a photo here; its a tourist must! Even in the rain its a really nice area to... More

This area was nice to walk around in addition to all the museums that are located here. There are some places to have coffee, sit and it's nice that everything is close together.

This is one of the places you need to see on your trip to Amsterdam. It's a lovely location with lots of museums and cafés around. If can get quite crowded with people taking photos etc but still worth a visit!

The short walk between these two great Museums makes it easy to visit both in a day but you will be all museum'ed out at the end. In between take your photo at the I Amsterdam installation and enjoy a coffee if the weathers good.

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
