What to do tomorrow in Amsterdam or nearby

I have a free day in Amsterdam tomorrow (4/30) and am looking for suggestions. I have been to the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh museum, the Hermitage museum, the Anne Frank house, canal cruise and Keukenhof. What would be a good activity?

What about a day trip to another town/city? We adored Delft as well as Gouda when we went in February.

Otherwise, still in Amsterdam is the botanical garden which is stunning. There is a cat museum not far from there either. Very quirky, lol.

What about renting bicycles in VondelPark? Visiting the Dutch Resistance museum. Day trip to Giethoorn or Zane Schans. Walking tour of Amsterdam with Freedam Tours or another company and/or visit the street markets on Albert Cuypstraat and try different Dutch food like stroopwafel, poffertjes or have a stamppot lunch at Moeders.

When our food tour got cancelled, we went to the Royal Palace. We really enjoyed the history lesson and the architecture (audio guide).

I second Jill’s suggesting of the church in the attic, very interesting or Derek’s suggestion of Zaanse Schans (some say it is too touristy but I really enjoyed it). Or you might go on a day trip to nearby Haarlem or Leiden. I didn't have time for Delft, Hoorn or Utrecht but have heard good things about them as well for a day trip.

Thank you for all the suggestions! I went to the botanical gardens and Church in the Attic. both were walkable from my hotel near Centraal Station. I enjoyed both, although the climate house at the botanical gardens is unavailable due to construction. Thanks again!
Edited to add: also toured the Royal Palace, so great suggestions all around!
