Amsterdam’s got more art per capita than any other city in the world (OK, it’s museums per capita, but whatever, same thing). So naturally, you need to ruthlessly discriminate if you have limited time there. So we’ll kindly break it down for you: here’s the art you should definitely see.
“The Night Watch” statues
What they are: Rembrandt’s “The Night Watch” in the Rijksmuseum is definitely the most famous piece of art in the city... and we’re going to tell you to skip it. Don't get us wrong, it's great, but if you’re not a Rembrandt fanatic looking to analyze the ink, there’s a much more fun (and free) way to interact with this piece of art: in 2006, two Russian guys made life-size statues of all the figures in the painting to celebrate Amsterdam’s main art man’s 400th birthday.
Where to find them: Under the giant Rembrandt statue in the center of Rembrandtplein. Of course.
Why they're worth seeing: You can get right in there and take a selfie in the art.
