“Great area to stay in.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

Museumplein is a fantastic area to stay in during your trip to Amsterdam. Its got all the main museums nearby, as well as shops and cafes around and the beautiful Vondelpark. Also, it's only a 30-40 minute walk into the centre, crossing over the lovely canals and passing quaint shops and cafes. Tram and bus stops are also all around.

I would recommend Vondelpark and you must visit the Rijksmuseum for the 'I amsterdam' sign outside!

“Lovely open space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

Stopped by this plaza en route from the Van Gogh Museum to the Rijksmuseum. Great to see so many people enjoying the amenities. Recommend a drink or bite to eat in Cobra, overlooking the water feature. There was some great breakdancing and body popping from a group of guys going on the day we visited.

“Nice area...but full of tourists.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

It's nice to get an ice cream, sit by a fountain, or just people watch. But it's crowded with tourists heading into the museums. Fun, but not particularly relaxing.

“Lots to do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

The Museumplein is a great place to spend a day. Whether it's relaxing on the carefully manicured lawns or wandering enraptured through the Rijksmuseum that dominates the scene, you can spend at least a good part of your day in Amsterdam dedicating yourself to a few of Holland's best museums.

“THE place for art lovers in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

In addition to the three superb museums, the grounds are fun to stroll in and there is a play area for children. Lots of locals enjoying the sun, playing casual football, biking, etc.
