Photo studio In the exhibition Amsterdam Port City you will see lots of portraits, from paintings to photographs. Among them are of Turkish workers who came to the Netherlands to work in the harbor.

Our tour guides take you on a speed tour through the museum: they talk about migration from and to the port through the centuries. You will stop at the VOC ship, learn about the (old) neighborhood, view beautiful objects and hear personal stories from the past and present. You end in the exhibition Amsterdam Port City.
