“Titanic Exhibition could be a bit more creative, but still interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Although living in the Netherlands, it was my first time visiting this Amsterdam EXPO. I like very much the premisses, whit a good space for exhibitions, a comfortable auditorium and a cozy cafeteria. the shop is the same as many exhibition places and museums, I mean, right at the entrance you can find this great deal of merchandising at your hand.

But coming to the Titanic exhibition. I like it, although I think that the display of items could be done in a more creative/interactive way. But in some parts of the place, a reproduction of the environment of the ship was done beautifully, like for instance a corridor made like one corridor of first class, just after the first room exhibition. And after the corridor, a reproduction of one veranda, also well done.

The items tell histories themselves. Also the money asked for the different classes of passengers and the reproduction of a room from first class and a room from third class, tells a lot of the difference of classes on British society at that time.

Tickets are reasonable, and a bit cheaper if bought by internet., although you have then to choose a specific time for your visit.

All in all a good learning opportunity.

“The Titanic Artifact Exhibition Amsterdam: Disappointing and Overpriced!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Not often did I visit an exhibition that was so disappointing. With an entry price of €18,- p.p. I expected to see much more of the crucial artifacts and excavations from the Titanic. Unlike other exhibitions in the world the Amsterdam Expo showed just a limited number of items. A scale model was missing and no large parts of the hull. One display was entirely devoted to coins and paper money from the beginning of the last century found at the Titanic escalation site. Compared to other Titanic Artifact Exhibitions in the world, in Amsterdam there where much less mock-ups. Last but not least the video's that were presented where already broadcasted on the National Geographic Channel. Thus nothing truly new, a high entry cost, plus additional charge for lockers, Amsterdam Expo is overpriced.

“ok but not mind blowing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

It was ok but quite expensive for what you actually get to see.
I had expected more interactive stuff.

The locker actually costs 2 euros. You would assume you get it refunded afterwards, but this is actually not the case. so avoid using it.

“Trip Down Memory Lane!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

A visit to the Pixar Exhibition has been on my to do list for months now. It is only showing for the next 2 weeks, and if you're a big Pixar fan like me, it is absolutely worth a visit. I think it is cheaper if you buy tickets online, and give yourself more than 2 hours so you can have a good look at all the interactive exhibits they have on display.

“Pixar: 25 Years of Animation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I got a good view of their work and company. Learn how the characters are drawn, how the story begin and how the company starts. I enjoyed it a lot!
