Museum collection

Amsterdams Historisch Museum collection.

The Amsterdam Museum manages the collection of more than 80,000 objects of the city of Amsterdam. Whereas approximately half of the objects were preserved by the city itself, the other half originates from donations. The collection consists of paintings, models, archeological findings, photographs, but also less likely items such as a playable carillon, a Witkar (environment-friendly vehicle from the 1960s) and a replica of Café 't Mandje (a famous pub in the Red-light district where prostitutes, pimps, seamen and lesbian women came together).
