The other suggestion - rent bicycles.
We rented a houseboat on the Prinsengracht in the west end, near the Noordermarkt which was great place to walk around and explore the old archirecture, markets and people. It is an extremely bicycle friendly place, and you may appreciate the value of a pedestarian bike (versus the MTN, et cetera).
I use the term - Anarchy with manners to describe Amsterdam traffic. Meaning the rules of the road and right of ways is loosely followed (if that), never-the-less, people ride-drive with express attitude to do no harm.
Building, canal, people, bikes, cafes, food, et cetera are all subjects available.
No cameras in the Van Gogh Muesem. Vincent and John Singer Sargeant are my goto artist, and the VG muesum is great, but comparative to Paris, Paris has the better collection of muesums. As an artist, the Rembrandt House (resident printer is from Seattle, and thus recommended) Rikjsmuesem and Van Gogh are must sees, then whatever you desire. It is the city that is great, having a beer, watching.
