Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
Eat, see, and stay in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
We were accompanied by our UniWorld guide, Muriel, on the tour of this museum. She was very good to help us understand each painting and the history. Her knowledge brought new life to the flat paintings. I enjoyed Rijk more than the Van Gogh museum.
Lovely quirky art gallery/house/museum.
Enjoy Banksy and his political views and world views
I’m not a modern Art aficionado but enjoy and appreciate it
Found the exhibit amusing informative and admire Banksy even more now
Lichtenstein‘s exhibit was good too I found the most interesting and engaging was his replica of van Goghs’ drawing of his bedroom in Arles
We stumbled upon this restaurant and I can't believe our luck. I have learned to love seafood living in Maryland. This was some of best seafood that I have ever had. The calamari was so tender and tasty. The oysters and scallops were fantastic! I had never had razor clams but was delighted that I tried them.
Found this restaurant from TripAdvisor based on location, near the museum quarter, a huge inner city park (Vondelpark), and near the Amsterdam Hilton (all walks 15 minutes or less) and was not disappointed!
A small, local restaurant where neighbours clearly drop by on a regular basis to see what is on the ever-changing menu: typically 2 new appetizers, main courses...
Quick service. Food was tasty, just wish I had more of it per serving. The waiters were accommodating for my two year old, and provided a high chair and child’s selection for food. Recommend going to lunch and getting asparagus and monk fish.
My husband and I stayed at Hotel Fita for 7 nights during our anniversary trip to Europe. It's located in the Museum Quarter, close to Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, and Fashion Street. There're tram stops nearby so it's easy to travel from the hotel to Central Station and other points of interest. The continental breakfast is good. I ordered their...
Fabulous hotel with the most amazing gin and tonics! Colette, who works in the restaurant/bar, is beyond fantastic. She went above and beyond in serving me and my colleagues, making us feel welcome in Amsterdam! Can’t wait to come back!
Great place to stay. Very clean and great staff. Highly recommend. Walking distance to many places of interest and shops. Great location. Close distance to bus 397 that takes you back to the airport. Great breakfast buffet and lobby bar

This hotel was a pleasant surprise for us because of the size of the room. The room was comfortable and had room for us to actually open our suitcases and leave them open. The location is excellent if you want to visit the Rijks and Van Gogh Museums. The breakfast was very good. One think it does lack in the...
This is a small boutique hotel that is well priced, clean and in a great area. The personnel were outstanding and work very hard to please their guests. I would have given it a 5 except the room was really tight but amenities were great. They have a great breakfast every morning but you will need to try one of...
