Oosterdok

Things to do in Oosterdok

High atop the temporary HQ of the Stedelijk Museum, in the edgy eastern docklands, sits this anomaly of dining and entertainment: occupying a full floor of a vast warehouse building, it has the merest hint of décor (some cheery yellow-green paint here and there, long picnic tables).

Amsterdam’s museum of contemporary art dates back to 1895 and houses classic and contemporary art, including photography and design objects. Over the years, its collection and mission outgrew the original neo-Renaissance-style brick building.

This Amsterdam company started importing Mediterranean pottery in 1986, and today manufactures and sells a wide range of artistic, designer-driven home products.
