“Crowded :<”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

It was so crowded when we got there. There were street dancers that was in front of the sign. It was very annoying. Getting a good picture by the sign is impossible. You just have to work on what you have. Overall experience in Amsterdam is great though.

“Great town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Yes it is SUPER crowded, and you have to watch for bikes from the toddlers who can't hardly walk to the senior citizen everyone rides. Everyone is helpful. All the museums are within walking distance. Will return.

“Always crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

It's a big square surrounded by museums, Stedelijk museum, Rijk museum and Van Gogh museum. There is always activities on it, like concerts, something with soccer or people hanging around. It's a place to be for every tourist because of the big letter "I amsterdam". Everyone wants to have a picture with it. If you want to have picture with this letter alone, make sure that you come early in the morning or.... look at the internet where the other "I amsterdam" letter will be placed at the moment. Go there and you can take picture as many as you want without other people next to you.

“All the famous museums in one place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

We stayed in this district and really glad we did, because we were able to visit two out of three museums inn Museumplein. it is also right by the famous I am Amsterdam sign where everyone wants to climb and take pictures on top of. If you are into it, make sure you get there at 8am to get the best picture when noone else is there. There are also the best street waffles and crepes that they sell in the booths on the street. They are so delicious!

“Great place to stroll ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

And people watch here in this park like setting. Lots of activities happening, there are restaurants near by or just bring your own food and have a picnic.
