Amsterdam is known as a city brimming with culture and one of the reasons for this is its plethora of incredible museums. The Dutch capital is home to more than its fair share of enticing cultural institutions, which encompass everything from classic to modern art, history to film.

Our pick of 16 of the best museums in the city includes spaces dedicated to two of the Netherlands’ most famous artists – Van Gogh and Rembrandt – as well as art galleries that exhibit the best works by creatives, both past and present, from all over the world. And, if you’re looking for something a little more unusual, there’s also a tiny but beautiful church hidden in an attic and a museum dedicated entirely to Dutch cheese.
