Full description
Visit the new exhibition “Amsterdam DNA” at the Amsterdam Museum, and discover the history of Amsterdam in less than one hour!

Explore the city of Johan Cruijff, Rembrandt, the East India Company and marijuana. Superb interactive displays will explain the rise and reason for the city’s notorious Red Light District, and describe the significance of the spice trade in the city’s development. A memorial to 1,000 years of commerce in the watery city, Amsterdam DNA presents superb stories of entrepreneurship, creativity, citizenship and freedom.

See, read, hear and taste how the city came about, and why it was – and still is – what it is. Get a concise overview of the city’s history through interactive images, sound, movement and specially chosen objects.

Enjoy the current special exhibition of Ferdinand Bol and Govert Flinck – Rembrandt’s master's pupils. Ferdinand Bol (1616-1680) and Govert Flinck (1615-1660) are two of the most important Amsterdam painters of the Golden Age; they were at least as successful as their former teacher Rembrandt.

In the autumn of 2017, the first ever retrospective of Bol and Flinck will take place, in which the Amsterdam Museum and the Rembrandt House Museum are working together to present a unique image of these two artists. The Rembrandt House Museum, the place where Govert Flinck and Ferdinand Bol were trained by Rembrandt, will highlight their exciting learning period. Their further development as absolute masters of their profession will be shown in the Amsterdam Museum.

It was very nice as a fun activity, but not as a learning activity

I actually give two reviews: it was meticulous, it worked and it was fun. At the same time as I go to the little orphanage with the grandchildren I don't want to hear about bugs, but about orphans. The same applies to the rest of the museum. In another five years all museums will be the same, because they all try to fascinate you interactively and therefore it is all about the same "relevant" themes: nature, openness, free sex, strangers, ...

Very interesting historic museum, missed a bit a historic overview

The museum had a lot of good info about key periods of Amsterdam's history. We saw it as a start to our visit to enjoy better the city, but focus on selected periods for instance meant you heard about the Spanish being kicked out - but never when they came, which was a bit confusing.

Great for getting bearings!

Gave us the run down of the city and it’s history, definitely worth the cheap price for a student ticket to get information about Amsterdam. Fun and interactive, would definitely reccomend
