Established in 1926 The Amsterdam Museum was called until 2011 Amsterdam Historisch Museum. Here are gathered all items and information existed about Amsterdam history, was was formed and how evolved. The Amsterdam Museum manages the collection of the city of Amsterdam. A large part of this is in our Collection Center: more than 80,000 objects. About half of the objects are kept by the city itself, the other half comes from donations and legacies. The collection has grown since the sixteenth century, when the city council first placed paintings and other objects in the town hall on the Dam. In the course of time many collections of urban institutions have been added, for example the militia pieces, the regent portraits, the guild silver collection and the statues of David and Goliath.
