The museum itself is tiny and not terribly interesting, but the tour is terrific -- you have the opportunity to go into one of the apartments, which is furnished with period pieces, and the guide is friendly and knowledgeable. The whole concept of the Amsterdam School is admirable, even if the style was not to our taste. It is quite... More

If you're interested or are a student in architecture this museum is an absolute must. The "Amsterdamse School"-style is rather unique in the world and worth studying. In several parts of the city you will be confronted with this style, and here you will learnb a lot about its background and its architects.

This is not only a visit to the museum building, but also a guided tour of the neighborhood with explanation of how the architecture developed in this area of the city. Tours in English also available, just ask. For museum cardholders, entrance is free of charge.

A nice place to visit if you like "modern" architecture. The guided tour was interesting and we could visit the post office (where the entrance is), an apartment, and the tower. This building is really different from the "standard" houses you see in the centre of Amsterdam.

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

Very nice detailed exhibition about the so called amsterdam architecture style from 1910 until 1925. It is in some buildings made in this style.

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
