Wheelchair accessible attractions?

I'm taking my mum to see family in Amsterdam soon. She has back issues that often causes her to use a wheelchair. Can anyone tell me if most or even any of the major attractions are wheelchair accessible? Are there specific ones you can recommend?

I'd say most attractions themselves are accessible for wheelchairs. Anne Frank House is unfortunately an exception. The Van Gogh Museum  is one of my favorite museums in Amsterdam and is completely wheelchair accessible. And of course the recently renovated Rijksmuseum Amsterdam is a must see. Might be wise to check the different websites before going.

Amsterdam is in itself maube not the most wheelchair friendly city due to its canals, bridges, tram tracks and sometimes narrow sidewalks. On the other hand, it's a city with many bikes and pedestrians and few cars so that helps. A great and comfortable way to see the city might be to take a canal cruise. I quickly checked some of the major companies' websites and they do have wheelchair accessible boats, only sometimes just at specific times.

Major attractions in Amsterdam are wheelchair friendly. I think the whole city is quite accessible for wheelchairs and buggy's.

Big museum's like Rijksmuseum Amsterdam are definitely wheelchair friendly. They also have some wheelchairs that can be used by visitors.

In general, most major attractions in Holland are easily accessible for wheelchairs, even public transport is an option. I would recommend visiting the recently renovated  Rijksmuseum Amsterdam for some culture. Maybe afternoon tea  InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam ?
