Directions to Stadsarchief Amsterdam
Amsterdam is quite an old city, dating back from the late 13th Century. Now obviously, a city that old would have a vast storehouse of information regarding its origins. Where does this information go? This information is compiled, organised and stored in the Stadsarchief Amsterdam, which means Amsterdam City Archives in Dutch. Visitors coming here can get the complete picture on everything to do with Amsterdam, from regions, maps, landmarks, attractions and even important personalities. The Stadsarchief Amsterdam stores hundreds of thousands of books, prints, drawings, illustrations, movies, photographs and audio recordings. From company archives to records on families, institutions and individuals, the Stadsarchief Amsterdam covers them all. Crudely put, this means that you can step inside this building a tourist, and step out as a citizen, nay, more than a citizen, an enlightened researcher who is well-versed on everything Amsterdam. .
