Things to do
The Anne Frank Museum has limited accessibility. The original part of the museum (including the Secret Annex) is only accessible via a staircase. As an alternative, the museum offers a virtual reality tour. The new section of the museum has a number of accessibility features, however Anne Frank’s diary here can only be seen down several steps.

The Rijksmuseum is one of the most wheelchair-friendly museums in Amsterdam. For more information, see the Museums page or read about ‘10 reasons why the Rijksmuseum is incredibly wheelchair-friendly‘.
As with the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum is one of the more wheelchair-friendly museums in Amsterdam. It includes ramps, lifts, wheelchair accessible toilets, free admission for wheelchair chaperones, and more. I recommend buying a ticket online in advance, as the ticket booth is located up several steps. For a full accessibility review, see the Museums page.
The Blue Boat Company offers the only wheelchair-friendly canal cruise in Amsterdam. Six out of 15 boats are wheelchair accessible. To make a reservation, contact email@example.com or call +31 (0) 20 679 1370.
For more information, see the Canal Cruises page or read my Blue Boat Company canal cruise accessibility review.
Most museums in Amsterdam do not have a reduced rate for wheelchair users, but certain museums are free for wheelchair chaperones. This includes the Rijksmuseum, the Amsterdam Museum, the Dutch Resistance Museum, the Royal Palace of Amsterdam, and more. For further details please see the Museums page.
A Changing Places Toilet is a toilet “designed to meet the needs of people with complex care needs” that includes a larger space, an adult changing table, a hoist, and other accessibility features.
I have been told there is currently a Changing Places toilet at the Rijksmuseum; however, I have not yet had a chance to verify this in-person.
