What is it? This museum is a one-stop-shop for art and history buffs, with everything from ancient sculptures and hand-crafted furniture to an actual propeller plane on the top floor. In the Gallery of Honour, see works from Johannes Vermeer and Frans Hals, plus Rembrandt’s seminal ‘The Night Watch’.
Why go? A recent, decade-long renovation gave the museum a stylish facelift without sacrificing its history or charm. Go for the Dutch Masters, stay for the ornate stained glass windows and perfectly manicured gardens.
