Get to know the Nemo Center area in Amsterdam
Wondering what to do in Amsterdam after you have finished at the science museum? Nemo Center area offers you plenty more things to do and see! 850 meters west from here is the famous Red Light District where you can find many surprising attractions such as a Buddhist Temple, a protestant church, a marijuana and hemp museum, and a small Amsterdam version of Chinatown – among the more famous things that this area is known for. See the women who rent the windows, window shop and gaze at the superb red and neon lights, and after that, if you have the time, you can walk to Dam Square.
Not only is Dam Square an Amsterdam highlight by itself, there are other attractions right in this square like Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, the Royal Palace and the New Church (that is actually very old). If there is still enough daylight after your long day of sightseeing, another great thing to do in Amsterdam is visiting the Anne Frank House which is only 660 meters west from Dam Square. Be prepared to stand in line though, as this museum is very popular and usually packed with tourists, although this tends to be less later in the evening or very early in the morning. Reserving (skip the line) tickets in advance is not a bad idea at all and will save you a lot of time, especially in the peak season! Once inside, lay your eyes on the famous Anne Frank diary that she kept before being captured by the Nazis in 1944.
