This is well worth the visit, and is an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. The collection is quite varied from around the world and covers but ancient and contemporary art.... from the website: "The Tropenmuseum collection currently contains over 340,000 pieces, of which 175,000 are Material Culture (objects), 155,000 are photographic material (photographs, albums, slides, negatives), and...

The Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam is worth a visit! The building and it's inner courtyard are amazing. Some of the pillars holding up the ceilings tell interesting stories about a small deer that is small but clever, and teaches us that you don't have to be big and strong to survive, but the small and clever can achieve too! The world... More

We had never heard of this museum but saw a leaflet advertising the 60s cultural exhibition which was excellent - fashion, politics, music, technology, slogans, etc. all from our era, which was a most enjoyable historical re-visit. But better still was a couple of hours visiting the anthropological displays from all around the world. We have a particular interest in... More

The Tropen Museum has recently had a makeover and is looking fresh and exciting at the moment. The new Grand Cafe is great and the whole place feels more inviting. The current exhibition 'Step into the Sixties' is really worth seeing - showing how fashion, music and cultural ideas spread globally for the first time due to new media. An... More

This museum is a little more removed, little less elegant than others yet great for young families. A lot of the displays are interactive and geared towards children yet their is a nice mix too I was able to rapidly sample a lot of distinct areas of the world. Large indigenous objects are housed here. There were also some edgy... More

Excellent day out, it was a last minute decision for us but glad we went, A very interesting and varied set of displays. Apart for what I assume were the usual displays there was also an exhibition on bodyart and another on gay art so very wide ranging. Beautiful old building which was undergoing some internal work so we did... More

Museum is huge with a great collection of artifacts from around the world. Unique collections from each part of the world and a great cafe to grab some lunch at afterwards. Easy access to public transportation.

This place is amazing. Its HUGE and there is so much to see, the exhibits are fantastic - very immersive and interactional. My husband and I spent several hours exploring - we just loved it. Great building too! Its a short tram ride out of the city centre, wonderfully easy and well worth it. We had the Museumcard and admission... More
