This cool gallery is part of the Amsterdam Museum – consider it the free ‘teaser' – and fills an alleyway next to the museum’s entrance. It displays grand posed-group portraits, from medieval guards painted during the Dutch Golden Age (à la Rembrandt’s Night Watch ) to Modern Civic Guards, a rendering of Anne Frank, Alfred Heineken and a joint-smoking personification of Amsterdam.
