What to do when you are in Amsterdam? Well, it’s not that difficult to asnwer that question. Next to wandering around, doing some shopping and taking in the nightlife, do visit a museum! This is a nice way of understanding some of Dutch art and culture back in the days. You’ll probably recognize a lot as well as these paintings are enormously famous around the world. Here are 2 museums that you have to visit if you want to ‘meet’ the famous Dutch artists. Our number 3 of this article is a special tip for everybody who likes diamonds (who doesn’t like diamonds?).
Rembrandt is everywhere. Alle over the world, in the Rijksmuseum (in Amsterdam) and of course in the Rembrandthouse itself. Why this is called the Rembrandthouse? Well, because the man himself used to live here! This was his house where he painted a lot of his paintings. He also had a few students in his house that he learned to paint. If you visit his house you’ll see the exact table where he sat on! It’s a very special experience.
