Yet another thing I love about Holland is how the country is filled with museums. Practically every town, no matter how small, seems to have a museum (that’s not to say it’s necessarily worth visiting, however).
Aside from the obvious and famous museums such as the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum (National Museum), I’ve come across a number of eccentric museums in Amsterdam, such as the Houseboat Museum, the Diamond Museum, the Kattenkabinet (a museum dedicated to cats in art), and the Hash, Marijuana, and Hemp Museum.
Even Utrecht, Holland’s fourth largest city with a population of 300,000, has a dedicated museumkwartier (museum district). Over the weekend we went there and visited the Aboriginal Art Museum, which has a permanent collection of traditional aboriginal art, changing temporary exhibitions of contemporary aboriginal art, didgeridoo workshops, and a cafe. How random is that?!
