And I recommend the Van Gogh Museum.

In Amsterdam I would further recommend the Rijksmuseum, which is a block away from the Van Gogh museum. It is packed with Dutch Masters, including some vonderful Vermeers and a stunning collection of Rembrandt's mural-sized (7-8' tall) paintings. Also, there's the Anne Frank Huis (house) where she and her family were hidden from the Nazis. You take a walking tour through the building and view walls that still have the pictures & such she and her family pasted to it for decoration.

The Dutch are polite, but a bit xenophobic- you are there to spend your money and leave. That said, Amsterdam is a fun city to wander around in at night.
