A private tour in Amsterdam by Thinking Museum is a unique way to get acquainted with Amsterdam’s cultural heritage in a way that fits in with your interests and schedule. Discover Amsterdam’s museums on an in-depth private tour or a creative and fun-filled family tour with Thinking Museum. We offer a range of private tours to suit all ages and interests led by our engaging guides. Our private tour programmes are developed by an experienced museum educator and are designed to be fun, conversational and interactive. This is not your average museum experience: Our handpicked team of expert guides don’t work from scripts and will never lecture – instead they are trained to engage our visitors in conversation about the about the works of art or objects they are exploring. No two tours are ever the same!
