Good exhibitions, but take the time they deserve

We went for the 'Napoleon and Josefine' and the Golden Age exhibitions. The lady at the desk said it would take maximum 1,5 hours for each exhibition. But this is way too short... read more

I saw the exhibit Alexander, Napoleon and Josephine. It was wonderfully presented with a diversity of objects,including paintings, period clothing, furniture, military items and firearms. The museum itself is easy to get to as it is a stop on the canal boat route. The museum is very modern in its public areas with a very nice coffee shop and a... More

We went for the 'Napoleon and Josefine' and the Golden Age exhibitions. The lady at the desk said it would take maximum 1,5 hours for each exhibition. But this is way too short. If you are interested and want to have good information it will take at least 2 hours (each) in our opinion. The audio guides are good, but... More

The entrance fee for this exhibit was steep, but we could see why. The exhibit was very well done, with many excellent pieces, including enormous paintings of the battle scenes of Napoleon's disastrous Russian campaign. There was also a model of the battle of Waterloo as it looked just before the forces engaged. The hero of the exhibit in Czar... More

We went at the time of the Napoleon/ Waterloo exhibition and there were four stunning paintings of the twelve of Napoleon's Campaign. There were not very many "Hermitage" pieces on display and quite frankly the "workhouse" exhibition was very well padded. This was probably the worst value museum we have been to in The Netherlands

Napoleon, Czar Alexander and Josephine special exhibit was exceptional! The permanent collection houses a number of exquisite pieces once owned by the very wealthy/royalty. Adjacent is the Portrait Museum. Both are covered by the city museum pass.

Perhaps I had just bad luck I'm not interested in neither one of the two exhibitions they have now, but I had the feeling most of the pieces weren't very top. Small museum by the way. 2 hours.

The exhibition of Napoleon Josephine and Alexander was of great interest. The displays of military history and the articles of Josephine breath taking. We also saw the Golden Age where my grandson who lives in Amsterdam could see how the Dutch used to be.

This was our last attraction visit in Amsterdam and did not disappoint with exhibitions of Napolean and Amsterdam as we were, both excellent displays. The venue is also very serene which enhances the display, just be careful not to doze off in the cafe as it is very very relaxing
