Great for all ages. Lots of lockers for possessions whole spending time in the museum. Recommend starting from the top floor downwards. The rooftop has a great view of the city and is a good spot for a bite.

Quite pricey to get in but lots to do so you’re well occupied. Probably more for younger children than teenagers but a good option on a rainy day. Definitely check out the roof terrace cafe for amazing views over the city. Good food too for...More

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

I don’t think it would be encouraged. There tends to be kids and others exploring the roof top as a feature. Perhaps give them a call.
