There are over 40 museums in Amsterdam, yet there's only one in Noord. Even though the history of Amsterdam North stretches back much further than that of the settlement on the other side of the River IJ, Amsterdam's largest district didn't get its own museum until 2009. Located in the former public baths of the Vogeldorp, one of the characteristic garden cities of Noord, the museum tells the interesting story of this part of the capital. The museum also offers plenty of maps for guided or independent walking and cycling tours that will help you explore the attractions of North and its surrounding wetlands. An exhibition on a changing part of the history of Amsterdam North is held every three months.
