Museum Square
Amsterdam's Museum Square (in Dutch, Museumplein) owes its name to the several museums located on this leafy public space. The Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum as well as the Concertgebouw, a performance space, are all located on this park, which is also used for festivals and other public events. In fact, Museum Square was originally designed to host the World Exhibition in 1883 and received its current moniker only when the Rijksmuseum opened two years later. There’s also a skating pond, skateboard ramp, playground and sculptures throughout this popular public space.
