How did the fishing village of Amsterdam become a metropolis? How and why were the canals dug, and why are they still so important to the city? Find the answer to all of these questions in the Museum of the Canals Amsterdam. Join a 400-year journey through the history of Amsterdam.

During the Dutch Golden Age, Amsterdam was the center of the world, its riches and beauty unparalleled. Domestic and foreign visitors admired the city of well-off merchants, with its stately canals and city mansions. To this today, the hundreds of merchant’s homes and impressive canal houses give the city center of Amsterdam its character and allure.
