Top ways to experience Ripley's Believe It or Not! Amsterdam
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
How to get there
  • Nieuwmarkt • 7 min walk
  • Centraal Station • 10 min walk

My nine year old son really enjoyed spending time in here. It’s spread over different floors and each floor has a theme and it’s very interactive. We particularly enjoyed the spooky lane and the revolving tunnel.

My family and I decided to visit this museum and we were very surprised by the number of artefacts we saw there. The children loved it there, and us - the parents - had a lot of fun as well.
Moreover, due to us having small children, the staff member informed us very well about the scary part of the museum which could be skipped. However, honestly speaking, it was not scary for the children as they were excited.
Overall, we had a very nice visit. Day accomplished!

It ‘s a great place to be. It lights up our inner child, be prepared to get surprised! if you’re a Beatles fan, you’ll found some treasures hidden in the musical part. Moreover, the tunnel experience is a vivid one, not to be missed! For the near future, microscopic sculptures in the eye of a needle made by Willard Wigan will be shown, can’t wait for that!

€23 a ticket to include a free drink when you get to the top.... don't be fooled, alcohol is not included, just a selection of soft drinks.
Museum was relatively interesting but you're not sure how real some of the items are.
Not worth the ticket price by any means.
Ripley's in London is much better and probably cheaper.

Thank u, next

We got a gift voucher for tourist attractions in Amsterdam and we used the last bit of money on getting tickets to Ripley’s. It is an interesting place and worth a visit. We didn’t stay too long though as we had been to the one in New York and we soon realised once you’ve visited one you don’t really need to go to another.

Ripley's Believe it or Not is the best museum i have ever been in, there is so much to do, there is megladon teeth, shrunken heads and a piece of the Berlin Wall and my favourite attraction was a moving anamatronic of Robert Wadlow, the tallest man in the world. It is a little bit expensive but it is worth it. Kids will find it fun because of the interactivity, teens will enjoy it because of the intresting pieces in the museum and adults can also enjoy it because of the history to every object. It is very easy to find in Amsterdam, at Dam Square. The best museum ever!

We spend quiet some time in the museum (about 2 hours).
Trying to read most of the signs, but eventually it was a bit too much. Just everything made use very curious. You have so many different kind of things and subjects throughout the museum.
Our 10y old was also able to skip the 'torture' section, which was nicely indicated. But she was highly fascinated by all the other bizarre things.
The little film that was shown about Ripley was also quiet fascinating. I only knew the concept from the tv-show (few years back), so it was actually surprising to know how all of it came about.
Would recommend with teens

Such a fun couple of hours! There were lots of interesting facts in the museum. It was made fun for all the family, with little reading involved. Lots of good photo opportunity with plenty of selfie spots!
