My 4 favourite musea in Amsterdam

While I mainly blog about nature and landscapes, I felt like blogging about something a little closer by this time. I was inspired to write about my favourite musea in Amsterdam after my latest visit to the Rijksmuseum with a friend last Monday. I haven’t seen all musea in Amsterdam, or the Netherlands for that matter, and came to four favourites (so far). And looking beyond Amsterdam, I could surely add a few more! For more information about these four musea, please check out their websites.

Opening times: daily from 9.00-17.00 hours.

Why a favourite: the Netherlands have a history in maritime ventures. It’s an important part of Dutch identity and history. Plus, my granddad was in the navy. It’s a bit of a soft spot. 😉
