“Msueumplein is happily what is more or less used to be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is the place where you will finds the most important museums of the city, but it is a nice place to stick around for a while, playing soccer with locals or just watch the people going by.

“Relax between sightseeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Museumplein is the square between 3 of the biggest museums in Amsterdam, Van Gogh, Modern Art and Rijksmuseum. So it is a great place to relax between seeing these museums, take a picture next to the giant ''I amsterdam'', have a coffee and buy some souvenirs.
In my visit I saw a lot of locals having a picnic there, and I totally recommend it.

“Great place to hang out.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

This park area is surrounded by Museums so there are lots of tourists but it is fun to hang out when the weather is good. There is a nice outdoor cafe and museum shops around. Great place to enjoy the outdoors after a day in the Musuems.

“Excellent little park to rest between museums”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Excellent location to stop and take a brief break while visiting the local museums. Quirky little sculptures and the famous I amsterdam sign. Lots of tourist during the warm weather taking their obligatory photos and an overall fun and funky little park. Well worth a visit.
