I was expecting a building with plenty of wax work models, however I was pleasantly surprised to be shown around by real life characters who add the funny side of Amsterdam's history of torture. A little spooky at times, so maybe not a place for young children.

Even though I'm Dutch (so I'm familiar with the history), this attraction surprised me. I think the value you get for your money is great, you get a good impression of the Dutch history and the actors are really good. The only 'mwoah' thing is the ending. They had a little ride, but that one is closed now. So you... More

We've previously visited the Dungeons in London (old location), York and Edinburgh and were excited to visit the Amsterdam Dungeon. Whilst not quite as good as Edinburgh or London, the Amsterdam Dungeon was still great value for money and we had a really good time. The actors are very good and the theming is top-notch.

You will have more fun ON the streets of Amsterdam than there!!! I had to wait 35 min to enter and was a waste of money!

As the four days we were in Amsterdam were all rainy and stormy, we went to a lot of indoor attractions. This was perhaps the most fun of the ones we visited. The actors made the tour interesting- we especially liked the keeper of the keys who let's you into the lifts, he was very charismatic! The tour lasted roughly... More

The actors are GREAT and the whole theme is awesome... I think it's a little bit too small place and the tour time is a little bit too short, but still, it's a very fun attraction...

The actors were good and if you have nothing else to do it is worth a visit but I wouldn't go back. Also quite expensive.

Well, I visited the Dungeon hoping to be scared, but ended up having a laugh. It was funny and entertaining, and I do not regret going, but it was not a must-see. I do not feel like I would have missed out on anything by spending that hour on something else. Still, I was a bit frightened at some points... More
