Museum of the Canals

The history of Amsterdam and the canals

To understand the soul of Amsterdam, you have to understand its grachten, those famous canals, which have been a tool to trade, travel, create and celebrate life for centuries. Today, the 17th-century canal belt remains one of the most compelling reasons tourists want to see the fair city, and the Museum of the Canals ( Het Grachtenhuis) tells the story of Amsterdam’s waterways in a most compelling way. An exciting journey through 400 years of history awaits you in a monumental canal house on Herengracht.
