This mildly entertaining dungeon themed excursion starts with you being locked in a cage with 30 other people until enough have collected and paid their way for the tour. That took us 20 minutes and began to get downright uncomfortable. The tour itself had some funny moments and the grand finale did give me a bit of a fright and... More

A good way to spend an hour. Not as good as the London dungeons or some others in the UK but still fun. The acting is good and the frights are well planned :p.

Hilarious! A fun and interesting way to learn a bit about Dutch history. There's a lot of audience participation also. A few parts where you might crap yourself but its part of the fun. Probably avoid the coffeeshops before going in also. Would go again if I were back in Amsterdam.

The museum was ok but a little childish. In my opinion more for <16 y.o. No real facts or history at all. Price is way to high. If you wanna go i recommend to buy tickets online

Decided to visit the dungeons as the weather was quite bad on one of the days we were in the city, and we were desperate to find something to do out of the rain! My partner had visited the London Dungeons before and enjoyed it, so we thought we'd give it a go! We weren't disappointed, the entrance was a... More

I enjoyed my trip to Amsterdam dungeons however I found that all but two of the "acts" were exactly the same as York dungeons. Even the script and props were the same. That said the two that were different were very good and the last one really scared me so they were the saving grace.

When my husband suggested we go here to say I was not amused was an understatement as I am of the view if you have seen one wax work you have seen them all but as it was his turn to chose what we did off we went. The dread turned worse when I walked in when one of the... More

My wife and I weren't sure whether to visit the dungeon or not. I printed some vouchers off online that entitled us to 6 Euros off the entry price. The experience is very tongue in cheek with actors playing different roles throughout the more macabre history of Amsterdam. We were in there about an hour and were very entertained. The... More
