Very nice museum. And a lot to see, one can easily spend several hours... Many very interesting exhibits, a lot of historical facts to discover, many interactional items (visual and auditive). Really nice! The museum is easily accessible from a nearby train station. All in all, a great experience.

A fantastic little museum in the East side of Amsterdam. I went to see a special exhibit but ended up spending hours looking at everything else. So much to see and do!

Many aspects which we can recommend. We loved sitting on the cushions in the facsimile Yemeni house aand ..well lots of other parts. Lots of to see and very well presented. A little far out but worth the journey if you want something a little diffierent. And the staff were as pleasant and helpful as anywhere else in Amsterdam!

This has got to bd one of the best museums I have ever been to. It has floors of anthropological and ethnographical exhibits, including a mock village from Latin America, Mexican arts and crafts and even has good bookstores on site.

There was so much to see in there. It was just amazing. It was like travelling from different ages to different countries to different religions. There so much to learn inside. I wish I had left myself more time. I could've easily spent half the day there if not more.

Unless you are a local, you can not get where the real roots of this coutry come from. You should visit this museum and maybe visiting the closeby Dapper Market to have a better idea of what is Amsterdam: a huge pot of cultures from everywhere are mixed. This place must be seen at least once. Perfect for kids.

Very informative, well-organized, colorful, interactive exhibits. Though I went alone, I know this will be a great museum for my 9 and 13 year olds to enjoy. The museum is larger than I expected, and not only did I get a great history lesson, I also learned more about Middle Eastern, North African, and South American cultures. The Tropenmuseum was...

Visited the museum with friend. I was like back to the past of the old Balinese life... Seeing many Indonesia and Bali's old photos and videos, I wonder why we don't have this sort of museum in our country. So many details but I saw in Indonesia part, the classic Balinese house is wrong. The guide mistakenly mentioned the old... More

With 70 museums, it is very hard to make a choice where to go in Amsterdam. Fortunately for me, i live here and have all the time in the world to visit ( all the??) museums on offer. The Tropenmuseum is really worth the visit just for the sheer size of the building. This huge building is such a beauty... More

Interested in cultures throughout the world? Go there! They have enough interactive things, also suitable for teens. We, as adults, had great fun! The exposition is nicely arranged. Will go again. General advice for museums in the Netherlands: If you intend on visiting five or more museums and/or don't feel like waiting in a cue, buy the MuseumKaart.
