Local Tips

Enjoy some helpful tips from Sean and Allison at Joy Ride Tours on all things Amsterdam & beyond.

World War II Resistance Museum

World War II Resistance Museum

History buffs should visit the Dutch Resistance Museum. It was chosen as the best historical museum of the Netherlands and tells the story of the Dutch people in World War II. How did they respond to Nazi occupation? Who resisted? Why and how?

Amsterdam Museum

Amsterdam Museum

A rich collection of art and archaeological finds bringing to life the fortunes of Amsterdammers throughout history. Our favorite is the DNA exhibit that shows the varying land elevations in Amsterdam.

Eye Film Institute

Eye Film Institute

The Netherlands Filmmuseum, the Dutch Institute for Film Education, De Filmbank and Holland Film merged into EYE Film Institute Netherlands. EYE combines an extensive, world-famous film collection with valuable expertise in restoration and research.

Maritime Museum

Maritime Museum

After a recent renovation, the Maritime Museum is the place to visit if you are into ships and maps. Its covered courtyard is also an amazing architectural feat. The museum collection is well laid out and surprisingly entertaining. Go to the windmill after that you see to the east and drink some beer!

The Van Gogh Museum

The Van Gogh Museum

The museum contains the largest collection of paintings by Vincent van Gogh in the whole world. Our favorite time to go is on Friday nights when you can groove to a house DJ and drink Heineken as you wander through the museum.

Our Lord in the Attic

Our Lord in the Attic

Our Lord in the Attic is one of the oldest and most remarkable museums in Amsterdam. Behind the characteristic facade of a pretty unassuming canal house lies a largely original 17th-century home and a complete hidden church.
