[Can I purchase a musuemkaart at the Troppenmuseum]

Yes.

[with a credit card, American Express or Visa?]

Don't know... Mastercard is more widely accepted. Contact the museum.

[And do we need to bring identification? Thanks!]

No. You can even buy a museumkaart for another person who is not there with you.

And certainly don't rely on Amex. Not widely accepted.

And even if credit cards get accepted, expect to pay extra charges, something like 3.5% or 4% depending on the shop / restaurant / .... (possibly only visible afterwards on your account).

We use debit cards a lot. Both for paying as well as taking money out of ATMs.

These are all the museums in Amsterdam selling Museumkaart. Not sure about payment methods they accept. http://bit.ly/UTo09q

If you happen to stay close to Tropenmuseum but they don't accept VISA, you could try Verzetsmuseum which is a 10 minute walk from there.

I had no queue at Hermitage when I bought a couple of those cards there.

Marly -

Not a good post when you are asking people to give you advice on something that is illegal on an open forum.
