The canals of Amsterdam are one of the key features of the city. For centuries here, money has been earned, art created, feasts celebrated and life enjoyed. This is the story that the Museum of the Canals brings to life.

The museum is situated in a monumental building on the Herengracht, where you are taken on a whirlwind journey through four hundred years of history. The Museum of the Canals shows you not only why the creation of the Amsterdam canals was so unusual, but also why they are still special today. This museum is for everyone who loves or is just about to fall in love with the city of Amsterdam.

The museum was opened in April 2011 to the public. The reason for this was, that the canal belt of Amsterdam was taken up in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2010. A journey through the Amsterdam canals begins here in the Museum of the Canals.

After your visit at the Museum of the Canals it could be nice to have a tour through the canals. You should enjoy it more then, since you know more of the history.
