Rijsel is the result of a passion for the French kitchen and an attempt to catch the lightheartedness of Flanders. “Rijsel” is the Flemish name for the industrial city that the French refer to as “Lille”. It is not the sort of hip and modern city you would expect a restaurant to be named after. Sometimes a name is just that, sometimes there’s much more to it. Rijsel is more than just a name. In a classic meets ‘60s interior with a modern industrial feel they serve no-nonsense food for a fair price. The relaxed atmosphere allows you to enjoy yourself, whatever mood you’re in or celebration has brought you to us.

Sustainable place. Café de Ceuvel has been founded by people that would like to make a difference in the world. The world food system is one of the biggest causes of climate change and many other social problems in the world. That’s why we are on a quest for truly good food and drinks. This goes further than a label that says ‘organic’. They are coöperating with a large amount of initiatives that make sure that every plate, beer or drink that we serve make a positive impact somewhere else. For instance, they are making our own soda’s , they are growing their vegetables together with Mijn Stadstuin in Amsterdam-West and their bitterballs are made of mushrooms that grow on coffee grinds.

The area around the Nieuwmarkt is one of the oldest districts of Amsterdam. The Nieuwmarkt (new market) itself is a square in Amsterdam’s Chinatown, next to the Red Light District. The area was once an open canal, but the waterways were filled in in 1614 to create the marketplace which gives the square its name. A daily market is still held here, and the square is also home to an organic market every Saturday. There is also a lifestyle and deli market every last Friday of the month between 11:00 am and 18:00 pm. Many lively cafés, bars, restaurants and interesting shops surround the square, making it the perfect place to spend a few hours browsing and people-watching.

It was Bernard Haitink who once praised The Concertgebouw as the best instrument of the orchestra that it houses. That must have been what prominent Amsterdam residents had in mind when they decided in 1881 to gift the capital city with a majestic concert hall. Seven years later, the swampy fields just outside the city limits boasted a wonder of neoclassic architecture, The Concertgebouw. Nowadays, just like the celebrated Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, this fantastic concert hall enjoys worldwide renown.

Welcome to Herengracht 605. This double-fronted town house was built in 1687, towards the end of Amsterdam's Golden Age. It was occupied by various families. You had to be very wealthy to live in a house like this, on one of the city’s smartest canals. This was certainly true of Abraham Willet and his rich wife Sandrina Louisa Geertruyda Holthuysen, who lived here from 1861 to 1895. Their lives feature strongly throughout the museum.

In the 17th and 18th centuries, the Dutch set sail in ships like these, known as 'Dutch East Indiamen,' to the Far East (what we now call Asia). The journey took about eight months. The ship moored alongside the museum is an exact copy of the famous East Indiaman lost on her maiden voyage in 1749. The Amsterdam can rightly be called one of the most stunning pieces in the museum's collection. Experience the East Indiaman Amsterdam! Feel what life was like on board a real East Indiaman. Hoist cargo, scuttle through the hold, fire a cannon... try it all! Rinus the Rat is your friend and guide on board the Amsterdam and will accompany you through all the activities.
