Something a bit different to do when visiting Dam, not very touristy and good value for money. The guy who runs it clearly cares about it a lot which is why I think it is so good. I won't ruin any surprises as it's a small museum, but I would definitely recommend you check it out if: - you want... More

I actually feel sorry for anyone who doesn't get a kick out of this amazing folk art museum. Nick and Marie are a fascinating, engaging couple with an unusual passion who have created something unique and fun. I thought the museum might be interesting but I actually learned so much more than I expected. Marie, from Paris is "the gatekeeper"... More

When we arrived and knocked on the door, it was locked and the note was a little confusing. When it was our turn to go into the basement we realised that the door had been locked as our personal belongings were left upstairs while we went into the basement. An amazing experience. Beautiful artwork. I was amazed by the natural... More

I happened upon this little wonder on a trip to amsterdam with my wife and was amazed to traverse the depths of the cellar where rocks shine forth with light and life. Nick showed us his rocks and they ROCK. On his advise i travelled to Varanasi in India(he found some good rocks there) a month later and that too... More

Had a blast here. Small and intimate museum, full of unusual fluorescent artefacts and artwork. The owners are a delight, full of character and interesting stories.

One of the friends I was traveling with found this gem on Instagram and we just had to go. The owner knows a lot about his flourescent work and is very well traveled. When talking with us he was not only passionate about his work but also about the education of the material. Who knew people dreamed of going to... More

The owner of the museum is and old and very energetic hippy. He filled the basement of his house with a large collection of fluorescent stones and art. The collection on itself is certainly worth a visit, but what made the visit really worth remembering is the owner himself and the enormous passion he has for the topic

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
