There are a huge number of "things to do in Amsterdam" but visiting one, two or more of the famous Amsterdam Museums has to be an essential part of the tourist experience. Our guide to Amsterdam highlights some of the finest.

The quality of museums in Amsterdam cannot be denied, and neither can the sheer quantity, but what really sets Amsterdam apart - as usual - is the persity of the experience on offer. There are Amsterdam Museums devoted to art, flowers, football, sex, cats, various alcoholic drinks and diamonds, to name but a few.
