“The best museum for contemporary art. Probably one of the best in Europe, so if you're in Amsterdam you should go check it out.”More Info
“A gallery from South Africa. They have a small space in the Netherlands and they represent cool artists such as Simphiwe Ndzube, Neo Matloga and Viviane Sassen. It's a small gallery so it's hard to find, but it's really great and in the middle of Amsterdam's centre.”More Info
“The best gallery in Amsterdam in terms of how it started, but they are also playing on the international field. They’re in NYC and London and they show really great contemporary art.”More Info
“A photography museum. It's also a beautiful building so if you don’t like the photos you can appreciate the space. It's on the canals, one of the townhouses in Amsterdam. The art is really beautiful. ”More Info
