The main reason I went to Amsterdam was not to visit the ladies of scarlet or smoke the local horticulture but to see the world famous Museum Vrolik. These are only the specimens on public display as no photography is allowed in the museum itself. I cannot recommend highly enough a visit to this place as the specimens are unique.
A skull on the gates of Bruges serves as permanent reminder of how traitors will be dealt with.
How often do you get the chance to go through the staff only door in a museum? Think about how often you get the chance to go past the velvet rope at a museum and hunt for ghosts? That’s right I got the chance to go into the off limit areas and try to communicate with those not of this world.
