“Interesting Egypt!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Only had time to see the Egyptology section and the newly opened Eternal Egypt Experience. Really enjoyed it all (especially the interactive presentation). Was fascinating getting a better understanding of the various archaeological digs throughout Egypt. Hopefully will get to see more on the next visit!

“Very Central”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

An archaeological delight with vast amounts of exhibits from the Egyptian and Greek world. We had ample time for walking through as it was pretty quiet when we were there but just the way we like it. Members of staff were very pleasant and took the time to chat to us.

“Not worth while”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Amsterdam has enough to offer in the world of museums. So this one you can easily delete of your list. Its run down, dusty and under construction. The fee however is the full price.

“Nice museum for those interrested in archaeology”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

The building is nice to visit, the exhibition is good, modern views on archaeology, pity the way it is presented is somewhat oldfashioned. If you are interrested in archaeology, this is a good museum. Check for the special exhibitions as they can be very good. Keep the plan close at hand as you can get lost or miss that part hidden to the side, Tick the rooms you visited, just to make sure you've seen it all.

“Special Troy Exhibit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

I went to check out the Egyptian artifacts and was excited by the Troy Exhibit as well. Pick up an English translation booklet for Troy so you know what you are looking at.Great display for Ancient History lovers
