For more contemporary art you can visit the Stedelijk Museum with a spectacular new addition to the original building, opened in September 2012.
Are you into wax? The Amsterdam branch of Madame Tussauds on the Dam square gives you the opportunity to meet the wax versions of famous people from around the world and Holland in person.
Amsterdam has really a broad variety of other museums to explore too, like the Heineken Experience or the Handbag Museum (Tassenmuseum), which is very popular with the gay tourists. For photography, check out the FOAM.
