  • We have been to this museum with I Amsterdam, eager to see the archive of the books of the city. There are few books, if not some shelf behind a glass case that glows upon request to preserve them better. The rest is a "generic" store: there are artifacts from different historical periods (from 1600 to the present day) grouped by topic (though often the topic no one understood what it was). Unfortunately most things (mostly photographs) had titles and captions only in Dutch, so we didn't understand what we were talking or what value they had objects. At the end of the exhibition are projected vintage footage from (the ones we saw) ' 20. One room in particular was inexplicably given to works of contemporary art of the city and city (upstairs, open to visitors without tickets). Also here all in Dutch, except that shortly before we went via the guardian made us have a small stack of A4 sheets with printed English translations of the titles of that room. Worth a visit if you're in a hurry and if you have the card, I don't know if I'd paid full price without.

  • The trouble for the people of Amsterdam in Amsterdam (se architecture) and other interested parties. Beautiful property with exchanged and interesting exhibitions archive, a wealth of information about the city and friendly helpful staff to help you.
