In a city full of museums, this one was an interesting find. Perfect for people interested in fashion. It’s not frequently visited so it was a little bit difficult to find but the exhibits were definitely worth it.
This was our second visit to the museum, and once again we were entertained by the history of the handbag as well as the enormous collection of various handbags on display. In addition the museum was hosting 2 separate exhibitions, one about the future of...More

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
