In the house of Rembrandt's wife Saskia, a 30-minute multidimensional film and theater show, for which you're kitted out with a pair of 3D glasses, takes you through the landscapes and culture of Holland at different periods of its history. Other exhibits include farming and fishing scenes. The show isn't as good as they could easily make it -- or as the steep admission would justify -- but it does give something of a nutshell picture of Holland. If you're not much into traipsing around heavy-duty cultural museums, this is a reasonably pleasant way to spend an hour or two on a rainy day. The toilets (I can vouch only for the men's) are themselves of interest; they're designed to look like the deck of a ship passing along the Dutch coast, and come complete with marine sound effects and a salt-air breeze.
