Things to do in Amsterdam
Amsterdam has many world class museums, as a matter of fact some of them can easily be considered the best on their topic. In our hum bold opinion you should miss the chance to see the Van Gogh Museum  and Rijksmuseum. While the Van Gogh Museum does not need much explanation to what you can see there, the Rijksmuseum is the Dutch National Museum dedicated to Art and History. You will find 8.000 pieces on display from many different artists, including Rembrandt and Frans Hals.
