The Museum of Human Body Parts


There are more than a couple of museums in Amsterdam that are dedicated to the human body. The Vrolik Museum, however, may be the most bizarre and creepy museum ever. There are strange bodies and body parts on display that is not for those who are weak of stomach.

The Museum of Bags and Purses


This is the museum that every one needs to stop into when they are in Amsterdam. There is simply an amazing display as well as a complete history of purses and handbags. It is full of light and color and, of course, every conceivable type of handbag and purse there has likely ever been.

The Museum of Florescent Art


An art museum is an art museum some times but this one is so full of vividness and color that it is simply stunning. It is dedicated solely to works of art done in florescent colors depicting abstract forms and ideas. It is a great walking around museum and there is even an opportunity to create your own florescent art.
