Mediamatic is definitely worth going to: http://www.mediamatic.net/?lang=en
Dutch design can be found at Droog: http://www.droog.com/
OCCII used to a squat and is now a culture centre next to the Vondelpark
with a *very* high DIY culture. Great place to see bands etc..
Dutch Institute for Media Art: http://www.nimk.nl/
NDSM werf. Old dock where now lots of artsy stuff is going on. Take the
ferry from Central station.

This should keep you occupied for a few hours.. :)
Have fun! And make sure you see more of the city than just the red light
district cause can this can seriously hurt your thinking about the city.
