Overview
More
Located in a passageway between the Kalverstraat and the Begijnhof it is possible to admire 15 substantial paintings. These are portraits of the Amsterdam Civic Guards from the 17th Century. Part of, though not actually in, the Amsterdam Historic Museum, this is probably the only place in the world where paintings are displayed in he open air, with only a glass roof to protect them.

This is a weird little place but lovely if you can find it. Beautiful paintings in a passageway only sheltered from the elements by a glass roof. It's the surprise that makes it worthwhile. And its free.
