2016: Contemporary Art Museum Opens in Amsterdam - A private museum of modern and contemporary art has joined the heavy hitters on the city’s Museumplein. The Modern Contemporary Museum, or Moco, which opens to the public Saturday with a show of works by Banksy and Andy Warhol, is across from the Rijksmuseum and adjacent to the Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk. It aims to present the “rock stars of contemporary art,” according to its founders, the art dealers Kim and Lionel Logchies. The husband and wife own the Lionel Gallery in the Spiegel quarter of Amsterdam. The gallery represents Banksy, Mark Lagrange, Jeff Koons, Julian Opie and others.They have invested an undisclosed amount of their own money into the project and enlisted the help of four unnamed investors to rent the 13,500-square-foot space, in the former Villa Alsberg, a stately private home built in 1904.

Rijksmuseum  - The new presentation of the Rijksmuseum collection is a journey through Dutch art and history from the Middle Ages and Renaissance until the 20th century. For the very first time, visitors can follow a chronological journey through the collection, and experience the sense of beauty and time this offers. The story of the Netherlands has been set in an international context and is told chronologically across four separate floors.

Van Gogh museum  - A visit to the Van Gogh Museum is a unique experience. The museum houses the largest collection of paintings by Vincent van Gogh in the world. It provides the opportunity to keep track of the artist's developments, or compare his paintings to works by other artists from the 19th century in the collection. The museum also holds an extensive offer of exhibitions on various subjects from 19th century art history. More about Vincent? Check Artsy’s Vincent Van Gogh page.

Stedelijk museum  - The Stedelijk Museum is an international institution in Amsterdam dedicated to modern and contemporary art and design. The Museum aims to provide a home for art, artists and a broad range of publics, where artistic production is actively fostered, presented, protected, reconsidered and renewed.

Anne Frank huis - The rooms of the Secret Annex have been maintained in their authentic state thanks to conscientious preservation activities. The rooms in the Secret Annex are empty, because the furniture was carted away directly after the arrest. Salvaged documents and objects belonging to the eight people in hiding are now displayed in the Secret Annex. We recomend you to purchase tickets on-line prior to your arrival in order to avoid the long waiting queue

Museum Van Loon - In the heart of Amsterdam on the Keizersgracht stands the house of the Amsterdam regent family Van Loon. In 1602 Willem van Loon co-founded the Dutch East-India Company. Six days a week the family opens their home and collection tot the public. In one of the finest canal houses of the city people can get a glimpse of the life of the Amsterdam Van Loon family. 

L’Hermitage - The building in which Hermitage Amsterdam is currently housed was for 324 years a home for the elderly. When at the close of the twentieth century it became apparent that Amstelhof care facility no longer met contemporary requirements it was decided to find a new use for the building. Since June 2009 the site has been home to Hermitage Amsterdam. Following its complete renovation, three architectural bureaus combined to turn Amstelhof into a modern museum: Hans van Heeswijk (building), Merkx+Girod (interior) and Michael van Gessel (grounds).

Oude Kerk Amsterdam - De Oude Kerk ('The Old Church') is located in the heart of Amsterdam, in the middle of the Red Light district. It is the oldest building in the city. A stone church, dedicated to St. Nicolas, was built around 1300. This church would eventually grow to become the impressive medieval monument we know today. The Old Church isn't just used as a place of worship, but also as a concert hall, wedding venue, and exhibition and reception area. It is called Amsterdam's living room. This has always been the case: Fishermen repaired their nets, Sweelinck played the organ, and Rembrandt took out his marriage licence here. Generations of Amsterdam’s citizens, including the naval hero Van Heemskerck, are buried in this European monument.
