Amsterdam is best explored by water, and this affordable boat cruise gives you unobstructed views of canal-side attractions like the Anne Frank House and Hermitage Museum. The boat’s small size and comfortable seating mean you won't be jostled by crowds, and you can enjoy unlimited Heineken beer, wine, and soft drinks while gliding through Amsterdam’s UNESCO-listed waterways.

As our daughter fond of science and based on reviews we included visit to Micropia in our “ musea tour day” . Daughter loved it: she viewed and read all documentation and explanations - we mainly enjoyed the numerous shapes and colours of the microscopic examples. Possibly for younger kids ( several around) those shapes & colours will enjoy - and maybe will result in them becoming interested in science too. Museum’s lab where they “brew” the exhibited microbes etc, can be viewed from the outside with explanation. Note: entrance due corona not via Artis main entrance but just around corner via terrace of DePlantage.

This was the first museum of this kind we were into. You get to see some interesting things under the microscope, how the food looks when its rotten among the other things. You can also try to collect all the stamps.

We included a trip to Micropia based on the great reviews as a family of 4 with 2 boys aged 12 & 9. However, I was left a little underwhelmed. The elevator entrance was promising and the interactive bits were good (the body scanner and the ants). But I was expecting to look at lots of everyday things under the microscope and be amazed, instead it was much more science-y and we all were a little bored after 45 mins. My younger son tried to collect all the stamps but the machine at the end told him he had only collected 22 out of 30, he was outraged! Overall, I would say don’t bother unless you/ your kids are really into science. Side note - the zoo is right next door and you can see some of the animals when you exit Micropia. There’s also a nice spot there to sit & eat lunch.

Our teens are very interested in science and microbes, so they requested a trip to Artis and Micropia, and luckily there is a combo entry ticket you can purchase! We really enjoyed Micropia. It is easily seen in a couple of hours, and the exhibits are interactive, including stamps that you can collect. The museum is modern and very well done, with the information given in a way that even non-science lovers can enjoy them.

Very cool exploration of the microscopic world. This is a truly unique museum. Learn about bacteria and viruses. Covers everything from diseases to soil to fermentation (i.e. beer), with interactive exhibits. The olfactory (smell) display is quite interesting. I highly recommend if you are in to the microscopic world and looking through microscopes.
