Amsterdam: Amsterdam Museum Entry Ticket

1. Amsterdam: Amsterdam Museum Entry Ticket

Panorama Amsterdam reveals the many facets of the city. What are the foremost characteristics that define Amsterdam? And has it always been that way? How will the city continue to develop? By connecting stories from the past, present, and future, a broader perspective of the city emerges: Amsterdam, in all its dimensions. The first part of the exhibition is a chronological history of Amsterdam, from the 16th century until today. The second part addresses what is important to the city as it is now. This covers themes and subjects that are not (yet) part of the traditional canon. We are constantly gathering not only the history but also the present and future of the city. Because history is being written at every moment. - From the oldest city map (dated 1538) to modern street art from Kamp Seedorf - From a medieval statue of Mary and Jesus, whose faces were scratched off during the iconoclastic fury of 1566, to memories of 1960s counterculture - From 17th-century civic guard portraits to Natasja Kensmil’s contemporary paintings of the regentesses who lived in the same period

Kosta, our guide, was so knowledgeable and informative, he had a very pleasant and relaxed manner and answered all of our questions. So many interesting facts about the Dam, we learnt so much about the city and it’s fascinating long history, he was very well informed. He really made the tour. Enjoyed the canal boat as it was lovely to rest our weary legs, weather was good, and again lots of interesting facts with a different view of the Dam from the all important canals. Thank you.
