World - City

new permanent exhibition

World - City examines the interaction between Amsterdam and the world. How has Amsterdam gained such a prominent place on the world map? Who comes here? Who leaves? What was Amsterdam’s position in the world? What is it today? Tolerant, rapacious, religious, indifferent? A bit of everything, perhaps, or does that depend? World - City offers answers and it poses questions. How do Amsterdam and the world see each other? How did they see each other? And what do you think?
