The opening of the Grachtenhuis Museum coincided with the 2010 UNESCO crowning of Amsterdam's central Canal District as a World Heritage site, so the timing was fitting. Situated in a double-wide canal house, the museum sets out to tell the story of the development of the canal ring through more than four centuries using interactive technology, city models, and iPads that allow you to design your own canal tour.

Open Tuesdays through Sundays 10 am to 5 pm.
