It's not an official attraction but the view from SkyLounge bar in DoubleTree Hilton hotel is spectacular. As are the drinks prices. Just take an elevator up to the 11th floor and go have one overpriced drink after the museums close.

There are also evening cruises with canal boats, check the various companies to see until what time they run. (Try Blue Boat, Kooij, Plas) iamsterdam.com/en-GB/…canal-cruising

Another non-official attraction is Tuschinski cinema, the entrance hall is quite a sight of art deco mixed with other styles and was renovated about a decade ago. If a nice movie is playing on screen #1, that theatre hall is also amazing (the other rooms are not so special). But check your shoes for mice before putting them back on (in case you took them off), and don't put your popcorn basket on the floor. :-)

Another very nice cinema that is a sight in itself is De Uitkijk on Prinsengracht, it consists of one (not very big) screen, a tiny bar area, some seating below, and some seating upstairs which hardly anyone knows about (I recommend upstairs!). The seats are old and rickety but that's all part of the charm.

House of Bols is open until 8pm on Saturdays, if that is of interest, the ideas from Cecile of the evening boat tours and the Bar at the Doubletree are very good ones, and also, the infamous rld - that doesnt close till about 4am, and is somewhere to see at night. (Casa Rosso, Moulin Rouge and Banana Bar dont open till about 8pm and go on till about 1 or even 2am - again, if thats of interest).

Have a good trip.

The date of my visit is Sept 14 on Saturday, so Van Gogh Museum closed at regular hour that day.

I checked the site about Open Monumentendag (Heritage day), but I didn't find the list of important buildings, monuments and private homes. Anyone know what are open to the public? I'm wondering if any sites are included in Amsterdam Hollad Pass?

"The fourth 2013 edition of Amsterdam Heritage Days takes place on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 September. Many important buildings, monuments and private homes will cast open their doors to the public, all free of charge. This special weekend focuses on the magnificent history of Amsterdam’s canals as part of the national theme ‘Power & Glory’. Over the two days, around 60 buildings and monuments will be open to the public, with many extra activities taking place around them"
