City Archive Amsterdam

The City Archive is Amsterdam's historical documentation centre. It is a historical and topographical archive 40 kilometres long that includes millions of maps, drawings, prints, books and a considerable collection of audio, photographic and film material. We maintain the archives of the city authority, as well as those of private organisations and companies that have a connection with Amsterdam. The archive is open to the public. We also communicate the knowledge about the city contained in the archive through our range of publications, exhibitions and events.
