Amsterdam City Archives guided tours
Amsterdam City Archives occupies the monumental building De Bazel in the heart of Amsterdam. As you move around its colonial and royal reception rooms you will experience a real sense of history. The building, once the headquarters of the Netherlands Trading Company and later the ABN AMRO bank, has many remarkable stories to tell.
Discover the hidden treasures
You will be given an expert guided tour of the grand period rooms and taken downstairs to see the underground bank vault and the magnificent Art Deco treasury. This is where the most beautiful and most moving items from the collections of Amsterdam City Archives are displayed, including the ‘family index card’ of the family of Anne Frank, a special festive catalogue of the fashion house Metz & Co., and photographs of Willeke Alberti and Theo van Gogh.
Don’t miss the historical films about Amsterdam, made in the 20th century (and subtitled in English). A cup of coffee with a piece of cake at Café de Bazel will bring your visit to a relaxing conclusion.
