Not quite the experience of the London Dungeon, overpriced, but still a good bit of fun if you go with some mates, short fun ride at the end.

we had fun but,.....on 2016, some of the special effect s looks old. the elevator that starts the tour smells of urine, the actors gave too much attention to the hecklers and all the other visitors suffered

Recently visited here as part of a 3 venues ticket. I've been to a few other similar attractions and in comparison to these it was somewhat poor. It is an OK place to visit if it's raining and you want something to do indoors - otherwise you're not missing too much.

The actors were intense and all played their roles exceptionally well. It was great to learn some history while having a giggle (and occasionally a jump from fright) here and there ! The crowd interaction was a highlight, they really got us all involved the whole way through. I highly recommend this attraction, suitable for all ages.

It is Nice experience, But we think it's is overpriced. Waiting outside, waiting inside, and waiting in the dungeon takes at least almost one hour. The staff is friendly and does a good job. The tour will take an hour, well done scenery. The entrance fee of €22 is far overpriced.

Amsterdam Dungeon is all about Amsterdam's history. The show which consists of live actors playing throughout different periods of time is about 70 minutes in length. The performers are well into character and provide scares/humor throughout the different scenes. The guests are randomly chosen in some of the shows to interact with the performer. I recommend that you pre-purchase your... More

My family and I had an awesome time at the dungeon. We didn't know what to expect , and was frightened at first. It turned out to be an unforgettable awesome experience . We were made to wait at a 'prison cell' which was quite cool , while waiting for enough people to form a group. Then we had to... More

The tour inside the Amsterdam Dungeon leads you through Amsterdam in earlier days. (between 1500 and 1700 AD) where there were witch hunts, VOC ships and a lot of torture. The actors are good en each will tell you the story of their time. (Their English is near perfect) It can be scary for some from time to time but... More

Went to the Amsterdam dungeon in november 2015 and was incredibly surprised! They have a funny and interesting way of showing how it must have been living in the dark historic period of Amsterdam. Everything is in English, so that's something to keep in mind. If you love history you must see it!

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
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.
