Art and history fans must ensure a trip to the Rijksmuseum is top on their list when visiting Amsterdam. Located only 16 minutes on public transport from PREMIER SUITES Amsterdam, this is Netherland’s national museum and was established back in 1885 by King William the 1st.

Fun fact, Rijksmuseum is the only museum in the world with a road and cycle path running straight through it, which means you can’t miss it when visiting the city.

Anne Frank House

Located at Prinsengracht 126 in Amsterdam, this museum is named after the inhabitant of Anne Frank, who hid with her family here for over two years during World War II. During her time there, Anne wrote on account of her time in the house, which has been turned into one of the most famous Holocaust memories. The house has since been turned into a museum for people to witness the atmosphere the family had to endure during their period of hiding.

It contains an exhibition filled with Anne’s diary quotes ( as well as some excerpts of Anne’s handwriting from the diary), original objects from people of that time as well as film and imagery of the events that took place during that time. This museum understandably is extremely popular amongst tourists so it is advised to book your ticket in advance of your trip.
