This museum doesn't make the list of "musts" in Amsterdam, but it's well worth the hour you'll spend here. It's all about the city - how it started and through its "Golden Age." It has interesting interactive exhibits that explain how things happened through the...More

When I visited in May, a new exhibit was being installed so I was only able to see the Amsterdam DNA permanent exhibit. That being said, the exhibit was very well done as it highlights the core pieces of the history of the city and...More

An overview of the major periods of city history with a good audioguide, slides and some art. Special expo on the Paradiso, a rock venue with a 50-year history. I wanted more from it all.

The history of Amsterdam is told in chronological order. The process uses panels on the walls and large glass screens onto which short videos are projected. Each video is explained via a sound track which you can hear on your portable audio device. Downstairs there...More

The exhibits cover everything, but often at a superficial level. Much more information could and should be provided if this is to be a complete history of Amsterdam.

The Amsterdam Museum explores the history of Amsterdam, from very early history, through the Golden era of the Dutch East Indies Company, to the present day. It is a fascinating look at the city, it's people and culture. My only regret is that we didn't...More

The Amsterdam Museum is way more interesting and way less crowded than many of the other attractions in the city. It is a museum that is used by both locals and visitors. So many tourists rush to line up for two hours at the Van...More

I didn't spend very long here at all. I'm glad that it was part of the iamsterdam card but I would've been disappointed if I'd paid full price to get in here.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
