Rijksmuseum Amsterdam
#1 of 289 Museums in North Holland Province
Our artistic teenage daughter loved every moment and my not-so-wild-about-museums husband equally enjoyed our time there because Lora was an art expert who could present in a friendly, engaging, accessible style.
The Rijksmuseum is indeed 'rich' - filled with incredible artworks, sculptures, antiquities and beautiful architecture (inside + out), it is also a marvel of modern museums.

One of the best, historical museums of Amsterdam.
The museum audio tour is excellent and they make it easy by using a listening device where you activate the story in each room, (like the Ann Frank House).

Zaanse Schans Zaandam

Fresh air, traditional windmills (we visited spice mill, oil mill and sawmill), museums of traditional living, crafts and shops, boat cruise - all makes the visit unforgettable.
After the canals and the famous museums, this quaint, informative and leisurely trip is a fantastic and educational insight into how life in the Netherlands used to be like.

Moco Museum - Banksy & more Amsterdam
#14 of 289 Museums in North Holland Province
A small museum displaying works by 2 of our favourite artists, Banksy and Dali, a bonus to our visit to the other museums.
If I’m honest, I highly dislike art museums and galleries but this one was a different class, its layout was organised, structured and very enjoyable.

The Corrie ten Boom House Haarlem
#15 of 289 Museums in North Holland Province
It’s a great tour for us Americans, a very personal tour contrasted with all the great wwii museums out there, that although wonderful, fail to capture the family experience and dilemmas presented by wwii.
In a country with many pricey museums this little gem is free.

Museum Het Rembrandthuis (Rembrandt House) Amsterdam
#18 of 289 Museums in North Holland Province
Unlike other museums around, this one is more of a historical stop and it is quite interesting (especially as an art history minor) to see the original house where Rembrant's studio and business thrived.
This house where Rembrandt lived and worked is really worth seeing - his studio, paintings and living rooms are so atmospheric and give a much more intimate feel to the larger museums.

Marinemuseum Den Helder
#19 of 289 Museums in North Holland Province
The museum is logically designed in sections to take you through the early days of dutch seafaring, through its maritime battles with the British and further afield in the far east, and right up to the modern day...
Great! Super Interesting museum!

Interesting history in this free museum with many clogs available to buy from the attached shop.

Willet-Holthuysen Museum Amsterdam
#23 of 289 Museums in North Holland Province
We've covered a large number of museums in Amsterdam and so far this is the best for us and will be for you if you love social history.
House museums aren't for everyone.Some people look at each room in such places and are gone in half an hour but if you love furniture, china, period design, and jewel -type gardens this is a great place to go.

The museum itself is like a work of art - amazing modern cabinets, beautifully lit, housing an incredible collection of Victorian bell jars containing curious, amazing anatomical specimens.
Frans Hals Museum Haarlem

Tip for those who like to visit museums: Get a card called Museumkaart (you can find in any museum) .With it, you have a free pass to all museums in the Netherlands, the Royal Palace in Amsterdam and some mills.
We had Netherlands museumkaart which enabled us to see so many great museums.

Kaap Skil, Museum van Jutters & Zeelui Oudeschild

/ There is the appeal of the on-site windmill and the outdoor museum cottages, (which are great), but there is also a salvaged ship and a whole building full of treasures washed up from the sea to admire and marve...
Contained in a purpose built structure, it is a mixture of traditional museum artefacts upstairs and quirky finds, but the true fascination is the many interactive exhibits in the outdoor area.
