The display in the museum was breathtaking. However, the entry to the museum was a totally frustrating experience. Knowing that the lines to popular museums (especially in the summer months) are hours long, I bought the so-called Skip the Line Holland Pass from Viator. Not only did we have to wait 40 min. to get in, we were told to go into the "shorter line" and it would only be a 2 min. wait. We watched as hundreds of people in the longer line with tickets bought beforehand, either online or at the museum shop were being let in. The pass also advertises free entry to up to 7 museums, a transit pass and discounts at many other attractions, restaurants and stores. This is a deception. The discount card is not accepted at all museums and the pass gives you only two coupons, one with a tulip and one with a windmill. When I consulted the book I was given when I picked up the card, I discovered that most of the museums required the tulip coupon. For example, I used the tulip coupon at the Van Gogh Museum and needed it again to get free entry to the Rijksmuseum. I had to pay full price to this museum as they didn't accept the Holland Pass for discounts. The transit pass was only for 1 day or for the Hop On Hop Off Bus for one day. None of the stores I shopped in accepted the discount card and the list of restaurants was very limited to mostly Continental or American style restaurants. There were discounts for other attractions which I wasn't interested in, therefore any one considering buying this pass would have to investigate this more. My advise is buy your tickets online as I found this pass, which cost $47 U.S, was not worth the money.
