This thought provoking, fun and fresh take on a museum is a must-visit for everyone who lives in the modern "social media-centric" world.
All and all, a great new exhibit of contemporary art on a topic that has transformed the way we display ourselves and communicate with the rest of the world.

My boyfriend and I visited this exhibit for the first time today and were greeted by an excellent and knowledgeable curator who explained the works of Mykola Syadristy and Hasan Kale.
That is the reason how a perfect combination comes alive; a wonderful exhibition that was as detailed as the works on display.

A real hidden gem in Amsterdam - just a fascinating and extraordinarily museum with an incredible an beautiful church on the upper floors - and absolute must see!
We loved visiting Our Lord in the Attic, learning about the Protestant Reformation period and how Catholics managed to practice their religion in these ‘secret’ churches in homes.

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.
It was fascinating to learn about Vrolik's interest in anatomy and botany, and to see his incredible collection of specimens, in beautiful old display cases.

We were welcomed by a very nice guide from the museum, who gave us an awesome private tour (no other guest were there) through the four decorated rooms of the beautifully restored building.
Set up in a beautiful intimate canal house,this museum houses a fine collection of pipes dating from pre Colombian to 19th century, spanning all different cultures.

The house is beautifully presented and the museum provides a great amount of detail on the house via its placards and a fairly comprehensive audioguide.
For €1 we rented audio guides and learned a lot about family history, various rooms at the house, lovely garden, and extensive art and porcelain collection.

I highly recommend this little gem of a neighborhood museum that provides a history and overview of the Amsterdam School of architecture, art and culture.
Take a tram 10 out towards the west of Amsterdam, walk through Westerpark and you'll arrive at Het Schip, a fascinating area with examples of the Amsterdam School of architecture and a museum.

I really enjoyed my visit to the Van Loom museum, a delightful canal house, which gives a great idea as to how the wealthy lived (still live today) in Amsterdam.

great place to learn about the Russian history and the 17th century history of Amsterdam as well as abstract art. in addition to all that the building itself is very beautiful and serene with helpful and happy staff.
Located along the Amstel river we found this museum to be very informative and if you have kids with you there were a lot of kid activities and interactive exhibits as well celebrating Amsterdam and Dutch history.
