Definitely one of the best museum to visit in Amsterdam. Lots of amazing pieces on the wall plus you get free audio-guide for the tour. A must go to

Gave me a refreshing view of art as a provocateur. I enjoyed reading the description of each piece. As one walks through the museum and takes in each painstakingly curated piece, you might find a fresh new perspective on everyday life. The sheer range of exhibits touches on so many themes. I found the museum itself to be a work of art, a blend of modern architecture and it's original building

Quite well curated. Has a set route that you can follow if you're confused as to how to go about it. They have some really fun interactive installation definitely worth trying! You should be able to complete the entire gallery in 2-4 hours. They do accept museum cards of you have one. A normal ticket costs about 10€.

Incredible museum. So much variety and content. One visit is just the beginning. Classic and modern works of art provide the perfect balance. The works are thought provoking and interesting and at times very weird, but all contribute to the amazing experience you’re sure to have here. A must visit for locals and tourists.

This museum is FULL of amazing modern art installations. The building and galleries are extremely interesting as well. There are so many interactive components. I walked through pretty quickly, but there were rooms and rooms of films. You could spend all day exploring this museum.

Medieval Walls of Avila

The city walls of Avila were built in the 11th century to protect the citizens from the Moors. They have been well maintained throughout the centuries and are now a major tourist attraction as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can walk around about half of the length of the walls.

The layout of the city is an even quadrilateral with a perimeter of 2,516 m. Its walls, which consist in part of stones already used in earlier constructions, have an average thickness of 3 m. Access to the city is afforded by nine gates of different periods; twin 20 m high towers, linked by a semi-circular arch, flank the oldest ones, Puerta de San Vicente and Puerta del Alcázar.
