Going into this Museum I had very little knowledge on this subject, the audio tour provided good/interesting information that was easy to follow and the exhibits were well constructed and fascinating to look at. Very good Museum. Highly recommend.

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

No. They require online booking. You should book well in advance. Without online booking, long lines and only limited hours, may have to wait 3 hours. .Unfortunately we could not visit it.

Tram 14 will take you there in about 20 minutes (stop: Artis zoo, Plantage kerklaan), but it's a nice 30 minutes walk through the city center; follow signs to Artis zoo.

It was all in one level inside but I can't remember if there were steps to get in; I don't think there was more than one if there were. I'd email the museum to check if no one answers for definite on here
