“Full day adventures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

This is entire city and huge. You can and you should stay here with the kids all day.
You can skip the first two station using the train and then the distance from point to point is very close.
The Photographer is very tolerant with children and give you a lovely souvenir in 20 euro for 5 people.
In the palace the pancakes are delicious but the service is very bad, so book ahead everything because there is no chance you will meet again the waiter. Please note that the payment is an independent fund at the end of the meal.

“Great Outdoor History Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

One of the highlights of my Holland trip. My friend and I took the one hour train ride from AMsterdam to visit this lovely museum. I was worth the trip. You stroll through the outdoor museum to see farmer's homes and shops and well as a mill, a paper making facility, an old shop street depicting Amsterdam, within a bucolic setting with Windmills throughout the property. It was a lot of walking so we did not see every inch of the place but we enjoyed our day at the Openluchtmuseum very much. We saw a great view into the lives of Hollanders over the years.

“a lot of walking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Fairly expensive but spacious and interesting. Rented a buggy/wheelchair for my father for only 1 euro. Very few traditional windmills left in Holland so lovely to see some in the museum.

“Great place for Holland heritage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

It was a thrill to visit with our young kids at this remarkable place. Here you can get a grasp on how Holland evolved over the past century or two. Like other places in Holland our children could not only watch and hear but actually experinace by touch and activities. Take the small train and enjoy the different houses representing different periods of time. Certainly A must!!!
