Owner description: This winter season Postcard Experience will be closed. Postcard will open again on May 1st 2015! Sorry for any inconvenience! The Postcard Experience is a very cool and original attraction in the center of Amsterdam for individuals, couples, families and groups. You are recorded (individual or together) in front of a green screen while you receive instructions on how and when to act. We replace the green with special effects and put you in an animation of Amsterdam or Holland. The final movie takes you around the main attractions of Amsterdam or Holland and ends like a classic postcard with 'greetings from Amsterdam' or 'greetings from Holland'. This digital postcard can be shared with friends and family by email, Facebook, Twitter or any other social media. At Postcard Experience we create the best souvenir in town, starring yourself!

In Amsterdam for only a night , aside from the Van Gogh museum THIS WAS IT... NOT!!! Rushed over on the tram. Spoke to many kind passerbys that pointed us in the right direction down this random street ... Only to find all our efforts were in vain and they were closed. Wasn't even 1900 and looked like they had been long gone. Talk about being dissapointed in this experience.

We are very sorry to read you stood in front of a closed door. Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience. Yes, our closing time is 19:00 hours but on very rare occasions or events we close a bit earlier. However, this happens only rarely and we always communicate this on our website and social media. Unfortunately you aren't in Amsterdam anymore but as a compensation we would like to offer you or any of your friends/family a free Postcard Experience during a future visit.

“Enormous fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience here, and got a great result. It doesn't pay to be too serious in life, and this was exactly the right mix of quirky and fun. We will circulate our postcard to our friends ad nauseam, and we get a laugh every time we view it. Thanks!

“Hilarious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

We had a blast at this ridiculous but fun and fast activity. We chose the Amsterdam roller coaster theme and used some of the props for extra effect. Super cheesy, but also a fun side trip. Close to the Hermitage on a beautiful little side street between Utrecht street and the Amstel river hear the Skinny Bridge.Very friendly and efficient staff.

“Postcards”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Very good, although I did not appreciate the very explicit postcards on the same stand as the usual postcards.

We don't really understand your remark about explicit postcards, since we don't sell or display 'traditional' postcards. We only make movie postcards in which you can star yourself. But anyway, we're glad you liked your experience!
