We loved this museum! Really nice overview of the history of Amsterdam. Wish we had come earlier in our trip so we knew the background for other tours and museums. But really enjoyed.

Enjoyed an hour or so walking through the museum. Price good.... 27 euros for Two adults and two teenagers. Great modern exhibits and really fascinating to learn more about the history of Amsterdam. A lovely location.

We initially attended the museum just to look around by ourselves. However, we welcomed and invited to join a free guide to help celebrate the pride events. The tour was delivered well and in an interesting way by Alex who was extremely welcoming.

A good museum that gives you a good history of the city. I think it is a little over rated and priced above average.

Worth the entrance fee and free electronic guide but a little disappointing as the exhibitions seemed to be somewhat disjointed with no room to room flow. Times/periods seemed to overlap with one room being almost up to date and the next going back a couple...More

I noticed other reviews about value. This is a good museum to use or buy your museumkaart. With it you get in for free. Then can enjoy the many exhibits in the museum. You can learn a lot about Amsterdam and have fun doing it.

Well, the museum gives a taste of Amsterdam history. Nevertheless, I think it doesn’t offer compared to other Amsterdam museums.

Today we visited the Amsterdam Museum! Amazing history of this city which is built with pilings in sand that go 50 feet deep or more! The museum is in a orphanage since 1975 which is interesting. As of 2011, the museum manages 70,000 objects kept...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

KLM, Delta, United, American all fly to Amsterdam. However, if you are planning to travel into the city center from the airport the tram service or a taxi is highly recommended. The city is easily traveled by walking. You... More
