Waag Society is housed at two unique historical locations in central Amsterdam: de Waag and Huis de Pinto. The Waag building on the Nieuwmarkt in Amsterdam is used for our public events. It's the oldest secular building in the city and very close to the Central Station. The easiest way to get there is by public transport, metro station Nieuwmarkt is almost beneath our feet. Alternatively, you can plan your route at

Huis de Pinto is where our offices are located. This is a monumental house in the Sint Antoniesbreestraat, a five minutes walk from the Waag.
