Amsterdam is home to many of the world's most famous museums (think Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum, etc). There’s also a multitude of smaller art galleries, not to forget the museums dedicated to photography, archaeology, multimedia art, ships, architecture and even cats or handbags.
