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 diversity, 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 Spiegelstraat, Nieuwe Spiegelstraat. and Spiegelgracht.
