The canal belt is the super crown jewel of our capital. The canals gave Amsterdam the appearance that match with a rich trading city.
The grandeur can be found on the Prinsengracht, Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Singelgracht: wide canals with houses as palaces.
A number of these city palaces can be viewed because they are museums along Amsterdam canals:
– Cromhouthuis and also Biblical Museum where you can look inside one of the most beautiful 17th century canal houses.
– Museum Het Grachtenhuis is a 17th century canal house with an exposition about the history of the canal belt.
– Museum Van Loon was the home of VOC founder Willem van Loon.
– The Photography Museum FOAM is a beautiful canal house with great photo exhibitions.
– The Cat Cabinet erected in memory of the red male John Pierpont Morgan (1966-1983). Cat art by Rembrandt, Pablo Picasso,, Corneille, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
– Museum of Bags and Purses Hendrikje is the largest bag museum in the world for bag fetishists.
– Museum Willet-Holthuysen with a particularly beautiful city garden.
– Houseboat museum at Prinsengracht 296, a former freighter built in 1914.
