The Amsterdam museum began in 1926 in the building ‘de Waag‘ at the Nieuwmarkt. Couple of years later the Jewish Historical Museum accompanied the Amsterdam Museum in the same building. During second world war, ‘de Waag‘ was closed and opened his doors again in the year 1955. Twenty years later the museum moved to the current complex at the Kalverstraat 92, what used to be an orphanage. Nowadays you can see here the history of Amsterdam, from the beginning of the Middle Ages until the present.
In addition to the permanent exhibition there are changing exhibitions. A variety of topics that have to do with Amsterdam. Nice feature of the complex is that they have left the regents room, it was decades before. Other nice feature is the ‘Schuttersgallerij‘, a covered alley to the museum, where 17th and 18th century group portraits are displayed and are freely accessible.
Since 2011, the permanent collection and the ‘Schuttersgallerij‘ are substantially revised. An exhibition is set up for children about the time of the Orphanage.
