Challenging the traditional notions of art, the award-winning Radar is a unique gallery in the city's art scenario.
Il Museo Van Loon si trova lungo il canale in un edificio costituito da due strutture che risalgono al 1672. Nel 1884 la casa venne comprata dalla famiglia Van Loon. I Van Loon vissero qui fino al 1945. Dopo una ristrutturazione totale, la casa ha iniziato a funzionare come museo a partire dal 1974. La collezione comprende ritratti di famiglia del XVII e XVIII secolo oltre a un innumerevole quantità di mobili, porcellane, medaglie d'oro, che danno alle stanze d'epoca un'atmosfera speciale.

The eye-catching building in Westerpark is perhaps pioneering architect Michel de Klerk's most famous specimen of the Amsterdam School of architecture. The building's curved, brick-exposed features make it one of the most unique in the city. Built in 1919, the sprawling building originally contained homes for the working class as well as a post office and a meeting hall. The facility now offers tours highlighting and explaining the stellar features and design philosophy of the building. Apart from this, visitors can also witness the old post office and various exhibits relating to the homes within the building. The original site of the post office is now a leading architecture school.
