This museum is a very good impression of the architecture of 'Amsterdamse School' and also gives an insight of the living environment of that aera.
...was the map they gave us with our tickets (€15 ea.) to navigate this magnificent Museum. You enter an open courtyard (South) from which you reach the stairs (and elevators) to the different sections: East, West and North. We started at "West" with a 'Circus at Sea' intended for children but that we also enjoyed, 'My Expo', and interactive show... More
Relaxed, informative tour (tours in English at 11am), friendly tour guide, and just such an inspiring piece of architecture/planning. The details on the building are simply stunning and we could still learn a lot today from the ideology behind it. Even if you're not particularly 'into' architecture or social history, it oozes retro cool! The Lunchroom is a great bonus... More
A walk through Westerpark or a ride on bus 22 gets you to this amazing wonderful building. If we could show as much respect to the working class as the Amsterdam School architect Michel deKlerk did in 1919 this would most certainly be a better world"
Amazing interior, a small exhibition within the Museum, but the highlight was definitely the guided walking tour which I cannot recommend highly enough. Not only for the knowledge of the guide, but for the social history, and the beauty of the buildings themselves. As another reviewer says, this 'museum' and the surrounding buildings are part of the fabric of Amsterdam.... More
My daughter and I went to this museum originally because she is interested in architecture and it turned out to be a real highlight for both of us. It is a 10 minute ride on the bus from outside the train station and the bus drops you right outside the museum and picks you up from there to take you... More
If you are an architecture buff, you must go to Het Schip. If you love all things dreamy and curvy and a little sexy, you must go see Het Schip. This is the apotheosis of the Amsterdam School of architecture, designed by Michel de Klerk, a genius who died much too young, and a museum since 2001. But don't let... More
Having rather overdosed on high culture, this visit was a welcome change. We were taken on a guided tour (English speaking on Saturday at 11am, Sunday at 12 noon ... and probably at other times, send them an email to check times and to book) of the Post Office, around the outside of "The ship" and of an apartment which...

This was an unexpected highlight of a recent trip to Amsterdam. I have a museum card and had already visited the more famous sites, so thought I would give this one a try, despite only a very limited knowledge of architecture. But it was fascinating, and as much about social history as architecture. The guided tour - in English because... More
