“Nice Area.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

An area with a really good atmosphere. Lots of tourists and locals alike use the area for many reasons. Often buskers and street performers to make it even more fun. Plenty of vendors and near by cafes to grab food from as well.
It was fairly chilly when I visited but I would assume it's nice on a sunny day.

“Standard "I AM STERDAM" Photo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

If you want the touristy "I AMSTERDAM" photo, then this is the place you go!
It was raining when we were here, but it was still a nice place to visit with the museums surrounding :)

This is the square where many Museums are located. We visited the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum and there is a Diamond Museum as well. SO much culture to soak in....

“Wonderful and vibrant!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

The Museumplein is one of the most sunny and vibrant places in Amsterdam. The place has got it's name because of a large number of museums in the vicinity. During the warmer part of the year, people enjoy sport and games or just lie around soaking in the warmth. There are a lot of good places to eat as well, there is especially a famous place for burgers and soft ice cream. You will be here by default if you wish to see the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Diamond Museum or the Concertgebow. Wonderful place!
