AMSTERDAM ART GALLERIES

AMSTERDAM ART GALLERIES:- AN AMSTERDAM GUIDE

The outstanding array of works contained within the many Amsterdam art galleries and the large iconic local art museums, is on a par with many of the world's great city collections; modern local and international art sits comfortably beside that of the "Old Masters". This apparent paradox resides comfortably within the city's well earned reputation for persity, tolerance and delight in contradiction.

Unlike the UK, the largest and best known collections of Amsterdam art works are housed in what are locally termed "museums" and not galleries, they include the major venues such as the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam's largest and finest collection of Dutch art), The Van Gogh Museum and The Stedelijk Museum. For further information on these venues and to avoid any further confusion over terminology please visit the "museums in Amsterdam" section of our website.

Art galleries in Amsterdam are spread throughout the city but a concentration of fine Amsterdam art galleries is to be found in the Amsterdam art quarter known locally as the "Spiegelkwartier". This district is to be found in the neighbourhood of the Oude SpiegelstraatNieuwe Spiegelstraat. and Spiegelgracht.

The many art galleries in Amsterdam are filled with collections of all sizes and tastes for the discerning Amsterdam Art enthusiast:- Whether you are browsing or buying, you will find that visiting them is one of the most popular and enjoyable "things to do in Amsterdam". Let our Amsterdam guide point you towards some of the best examples.
