a parkVondelpark is situated
near Rijksmuseum which is near central Amsterdam, and is

visited Amsterdam but it was winter and sitting in -2 degrees is not ideal.

9# The Hash, Marijuana and Hemp museum

The name of this museum kind of explains itself but the museum aims to
teach people how helpful Hash, Marijuana and Hemp was in past civilization. There
is also an indoor cannabis garden located in the museum.

      Be sure to book tour to Anne Frank house, Van Gogh museum online, it is now the only way to get tickets. Also to visit The Six Collection you need to send a request for an invitation from the Baron. It is an exquisite house tour.

    I have visited most of the places you want to visit. They are, indeed, something not to miss. My personal favourite was the Anne Frank museum. It is filled with so much history and it teaches you so much about the world amd yourself. Do visit it on your next trip there 🤗

    I'll admit, Amsterdam has never been on my list of "must see" places but this post is making me reconsider! The Hortus Botanicus and the floating flower market look breath taking. Thank you!
