Amsterdam Museums

The Milkmaid-Vermeer
Rijkmusem houses the Dutch masterpieces of Rembrandt, Hals, Steen, and Vermeer.  It has beautiful sculptures inside and out, and is surrounded by the Museumplien, a park that also has the massive Amsterdam sculpture that tourists like to to hang out on.  Nearby is the little Cobra Cafe that had delicious pancakes.  The other museum in the park is the Van Gogh museum, which houses the master's works in a well-organized fashion in a historical timeline.
