Visit a Museum

in Amsterdam

This museum is in Amsterdam. It was founded in 1798 and is the largest museum in the Netherlands. Its collection contains more than 2,000 paintings from the Dutch Golden Age (Baroque) by notable painters such as Jacob van Ruisdael, Frans Hals, Johannes Vermeer, Jan Steen, Rembrandt, and Rembrandt’s pupils. There are some very cool features on its website. You can tour the gallery where art is being explained in a great way. There even is a treasure hunt.

This is by far my favorite online museum!
