Stop 1: Museum van Loon
Worth the visit just to see the garden.
Stop 2: Geelvinck Museum
I was not impressed. The exhibit on slavery was interesting but there are better canal house museums including the other two visited on this crawl.
Stop 3: Foam Cafe
This was more of a pit stop as we all needed a caffeine boost. Had we known how beautiful the cafe was going to be at the Tassen Musuem we would have skipped this. I am a big fan of Foam though and it definitely is a must visit for photography fans. Tip: You can eat at the cafe without paying for museum admission. Good for a quick bite and free wifi. Passcode is appeltaart.
Stop 4: Tassenmuseum (Museum of Bags)
I’m not a purse fanatic but I did enjoy this museum. The big surprise was how beautiful the cafe was. Made a mental note to take my mom to high tea when she comes to Amsterdam again.
Stop 5: Museum Willet-Holthuysen
Since we added the bag museum to the itinerary at the last minute, we almost didn’t check this museum out. So glad we did because I enjoyed it the most. If you’re going to check out a canal house, I highly recommend this one.
