The Amsterdam Museum is a museum about the history of this Dutch city.
The museum opened in 1926 in the Waag, one of Amsterdam’s 15th-century city gates.
In 1975 it moved to a location in the old city orphanage between Kalverstraat and Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal.
It has been located since 1975 in a former convent that was used from 1581 onwards as Amsterdam’s municipal orphanage.
This historic building was extended by Hendrick and his son Pieter de Keyser, then rebuilt by Jacob van Campen rebuilt it in 1634. The orphanage operated in this building until 1960.
According to the museum, the exhbitions celebrate the “capital of the Netherlands. A 1000-year-old trading city that has a special relationship with water and a strong focus on entrepreneurship, creativity, citizenship and free-thinking. In the monumental Amsterdam Museum building you will discover the story of this world-famous Dutch city through a large number of masterpieces, such as an aerial map from the Middle Ages and Breitner’s The Dam. See, read about, hear and experience how the city has developed.”
