This museum is not competing with the great art museums of the Netherlands such as the Van Gogh Museum & the Rijksmuseum: it's a major city of the world inviting you to witness its life story since the Middle Ages to today. When we lived...More

This is a great museum to visit. Not too big nor too expensive. Very informative, nice friendly staff and a good cafe to visit. The cafe was full of locals so evidence of how good it is.

Great museum helps you understand the importance of amsterdam and how it developed into the beautiful city it is. Uses a range of audio guides and presentations to take you on a journey through the ages.

Admission includes audioguide. A nice museum but wouldn't be my first choice if time in Amsterdam was limited. It is part of the My Amsterdam Card.

Wasn’t too impressed with this museum. The layout was confusing and I felt like we missed a couple of bits. Couldn’t find the Remembrant! It was basically just a poor version of the Rijkmuseum and some of the exhibits were very similar! Was interesting to...More

This museum was much larger than I anticipated. You can access a "free sample." carpeted hallway pass through to and from the Begijnenhof to whet your appetite. Golden Age paintings and artifacts, WWII occupation and contemporary history.

Really enjoyed this museum. They did a very good job keeping it interesting while giving you a lot of information about the history of Amsterdam and the country. As they say in the audio tour, a bit of a maze but worth it.

Learnt a lot about the city and this museum not being one of the most popular was reasonably quiet. Well worth a visit.

Well worth a visit, but I wish we had been offered a map at the reception desk. The Amsterdam DNA exhibit led us through the development of this fascinating city. This was helped by the audio guide. However, then the confusing layout and signs meant...More
