This museum is full of well laid out chronological exhibits of the development of Amsterdam in its various stages. Captions are in Dutch and English. The political background provides a context to the development of the city.

This is a great way to learn all about Amsterdam. I wondered how and why the city was laid out the way it is. Fascinating and well worth it.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
