“Must've seen.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

The best landmark in Amsterdam! :D Always be prepared for the photo you want, because you never know when the moment comes... Then there's the Van Gogh and the Rijk museum

“I AM BETH AMSTERDAM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

After touring the museum we happened to stumble across the lifesize sign that states " I AM AMSTERDAM ". Which contains a refecting pool and open park space in a very pretty and relaxing area in the heart of the city. Purchased a hot chocolate and coffee from a vendor named Derek Mcgee (who spoke english-everyone in amsterdam speaks english).

“A lot to do round here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

Two big museums round here, the rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum. The big open space is good to. Some good cafes to sit in and get a well earned drink

“OK .......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Shame that the area is like one big building site at the moment with two of the largest Museums under renovation. Wall to Wall tourists who seem o be lost is how to best sum up Museumplein ....

“Wonderful Apple Kraffen!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

The Museumplein is a field that is surrounded by the Williem Stdelijk Museum and the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum both of which are currently undergoing renovations. However adjacent to the Plein and just on the sidewalk of Van Baerlestratt and across the street from the Concertgebouw is a food wagon that serves the most wonderful freshly made hot doughnuts or kraffen. The apple one is to die for!!!
