A number of smaller, interesting museums complete the historical picture.
Each deserves at least a morning or afternoon to itself.
Two main historical museums: Maritime Museum and the city’s historical exhibit The Amsterdam Museum, have been largely modernized and prepared to appeal to young visitors.
Jewish Historical Museum and Anne Frank House document the history of 500 years of Jewish presence in the Netherlands and their suffering during the Holocaust.
If you're not an early riser, then any hour (yes, even after dark) is fine.
Worst Times: Mondays, when most museums are closed.
