Amsterdam Sights

Did you know that ...

.. the best hours to visit an Amsterdam museum are in the morning?

It can be very crowdy in popular museums like Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum and Anne Frank Huis. There are often less visitors in the morning.

The best hours to visit the museum are from 9 am to 11 am or after 3 pm. The busiest times are between 11 am and 3 pm. And if you book your ticket online in advance, you can skip the ticket office and head straight into the museum.

The lines to get into the Anne Frank House can reach epic proportions during the summer, stretching all the way from the entrance, around the Westerkerk.
