Art Lover's Guide to Amsterdam

Art Lover's Guide to Amsterdam

Once home to Golden Age master Rembrandt and postimpressionist Van Gogh, Amsterdam is well-known for its artistic heritage and creative culture. From national museums stocked with masterpieces to countercultural boutique galleries, here’s what every art lover should see in the Dutch capital.

Rijksmuseum

The Netherlands’ largest art museum displays a comprehensive array of Dutch masterpieces, drawn from a million-strong collection—though its ticket lines can be just as extensive. Book skip-the-line entry ahead of time to beat the crowds, or take advantage of museum tours to discover highlights by Rembrant, Vermeer, and other national icons with ease.

Van Gogh Museum

Home to the largest Van Gogh collection in the world, this Amsterdam staple consistently ranks as the most-visited museum in the Netherlands. Avoid the notoriously long lines with skip-the-line admission, leaving you more time to study world-famous works includingSunflowers andThe Potato Eaters, or learn more about the artist’s troubled life on a tour.

FOAM

From politically charged pieces to high-fashion editorials, Amsterdam’s photography museum showcases a diverse range of artists, styles, and themes. Exhibitions are updated and changed regularly, so it’s worth booking for a specific show well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Stedelijk Museum

As the home of modern art in Amsterdam, the Stedelijk has a world-famous collection that spans every major movement over the last two centuries and includes pieces by Picasso, Pollock, and Warhol. You can guarantee admission with prebooked tickets or use a multiattraction pass that includes entry to this, along with several other top art attractions.

Rembrandt House Museum

No art lover can leave Amsterdam without a visit to the home of its most famous resident, Rembrandt. See original etchings and portraits, stroll through re-created rooms, and benefit from the included audio commentary, opting to secure your slot with advance purchase or dropping in with a city pass.

Moco Museum

This independent museum, which aims to engage younger and alternative audiences in modern and contemporary art, was the first in the world to curate a permanent Banksy exhibition. Countercultural creatives can take advantage of tours that include entry to Moco along with other unorthodox Amsterdam sights or enjoy discounted entry with an I Amsterdam card.
