Good location to stop and take a brief break while visiting the local museums. Love the little sculptures and the famous I amsterdam sign.

“good but not special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

okay yeah its a novelty, its cool to see, and yes i got a photo taken at it. but its so busy and people are clambering over it to get photos. its a bit un-personal. it is clean and beautiful but not something that strikes me as a huge tourist attraction. i wouldnt go back to this part of amsterdam

Nice, clean park where you can relax between museums and admire the surrounding architecture, let the kids blow off some steam, eat a quick bite, etc.

“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.
