Lovely museum with plenty to entertain the whole family. The building itself is amazing. There was plenty of space and lots of activities for the children to run around and explore, lots of hands on exhibits. Plus the ship replica, The Amsterdam, was pretty cool to explore. It might be a little out of the way for some, but definitely... More

Really nice place, very big and helpful staff for a guided tour. My mum enjoyed it and me and my little sister, so good for all ages, normally pretty boring for youngens but this wasn't as bad!

This is quite a large museum with plenty for young and old. The replica galleon is very impressive and good fun for everyone. It also has a number of themed rooms. When we visited there was a great exhibition about Dutch involvement with the slave trade. Great use of audio visual tools and characterisation of the events.

Go for the guided tour. It's the only advice I can give you. Even with 100 eyes, you're about to miss half of what's to see in the Shipping House (Scheepvaarthuis). They don't build these luxurious palaces anymore, not even in Dubai. The building is an architectural masterpiece of the Amsterdam School and was designed by the architects J.M. Van... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
