Top ways to experience The Magic Mushroom Gallery and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Very knowledgeable and friendly staff who will talk you through everything, providing guidance and advice. Follow it to the letter and you’ll avoid any surprises.

Depending on what you choose, you should expect to pay between €15 and €25 for around 10g (at the time of writing) and I fully encourage you to buy some dark chocolate too. The higher percentage chocolate has less of an effect on your experience but does make the truffles more palatable.

We chose to walk in the park before visiting an art gallery and we are all agreed it was among the best experiences of our lives. Highly recommended.

We didn't buy anything in here, but we checked out all of the things they sold at leisure and discussed them quietly to understand very clearly what was on offer here. I saw a few things we were more curious about, and would definitely ask questions and advice when that time comes in the future. One of the things I noticed were that the staff were absolutely not pushing any sales, but were open when anyone called upon them directly to discuss a product. Other than that, this was more an investigative experience, and we left feeling that the shop had a responsible and trustworthy feeling about the products they sold. Even though the shop was bright, the feeling inside was calm and non-judgmental.

My experience at this shop was really good, the shop had so many things in there and lots of different things, I wanted to buy everything! I bought some Dolphin Truffles and the guy explained to me and my partner what to do to make sure that they work. Wow... they worked! Me and my partner got back to our hotel and we was tripping out in about a hour of taking them, we couldn't stop laughing and everything was changing colour! It was the highlight of our little trip away and we will defiantly go back to the shop again and re purchase!

I am dispappointed

In August I bought online 2 mushroom kits for about 100€. The delivery of the box took about 10 days and they arrived without any instructions saying that these mushroom kits had to be placed in a cool place ( like a fridge ) I live in Spain and it’s known for being 30 C in summer , As well the shipping was uncooled so I had no clue they needed cooling … A week after arrival I heard from a friend they needed to be cooled , they were gone bad and I could threw them in the bin. I called the mushroom gallery and spoke to a man that fobbed me off saying each box always has an expiration date sticker and and instructions… I told him it hadn’t but he stuck firm to his opinion

I kept positive and ordered this time online 3 new boxes ( 150€ ) and when they arrived to Spain , none of them had an expiration date sticker nor instructions…

I was upset and made a video while I had the boxes in front of me on the street, I send it to an employee of the mushroom gallery….

Never I heard a thing anymore

Dear Stefani, Very sorry to hear that your growkits didn’t work. Growkits should be kept in the fridge only before you buy them. Once they arrive to you you should not put them in fhe fridge. The instructions can be found on our website. Please send an email with a screenshot of our conversation to Eric at info@magicmushroom.com. We will send you 3 growkits free of charge and a link to the instructions. If you follow the instructions correctly the growkits work perfecty. Best regards, Rodney

A very nice store in the centre of Amsterdam where the staff knows so much about the products. One of the employees, Danny, the tall guy helped me out a lot and is also very funny. I will come back for sure and recommend this store to everyone who wants to try mushrooms. The service is great and professional.

the staff were nice but the growing mushroom kits simply did not work. they happily exchanged the first one while acknowledging it was indeed difficult to grow. but even after the exchange with another type, it is still not growing. kindly note that this is not my first time growing shrooms (which i used to get from another shop). even when i got a heating matt to make sure they stay warm, this did not help.
unfortunately, i am not still waiting for my second kit to grow, even after restarting it (in hope to get it right the second time), but i see little hope in that.

Dear friend, Sorry to hear that your growkit is not working again. In general it’s easy to do, but conditions have to be perfect, and you have to work very clean. Growkits are very sensitive to bacteria. However, we’ll be happy to send you a new one. Please send a screenshot of this message to info@magicmushroom.com and we’ll send you a new one free of charge. Best regards, Rodney

I visited The Magic Mushroom Gallery 2 Times in my life and each time was magic. The knowlege, kindness, profesionalism of stuff top level in each way. I felt like a very important customer, but I wanted just to try the product. Huge choice and different options for everyone. When I came back to my country I decided to make order online. Because of life there was a few obsticles on the way for my package :(( , However I was served with best customer service, packeage was sent another time, and at the end today I received my package. Extremly fast delivery. Can not wait to try! Thank you for everything The Magic Mushroom Gallery. Specially Eric! Wonderful job!

My friend and I visited a few days ago to try some truffles. We had never tried anything like this before, the lady and man behind the counter were very attentive and explained the whole process step by step (you can take a picture to keep while you’re working through it) we went with the advice of getting the Dutchii truffles. We went to Vondelpark to take them. The sun was shinning, the weather was hot, the colours were insane!!! I will say though that eating the truffles is not for the weak stomachs (ours). Even with the recommended chocolate it was a bush tucker trial lol! Other than that, absolutely a core memory!

Dear Nikola, Sorry to hear that you didn’t feel anything from the truffles. Did you follow all instructions correctly? Empty stomach? No drugs, no alcohol? Why didn’t you come back to the shop so we could find a solution? Please send as an email at info@magicmushroom.com so we can find a solution. Best regards, Rodney

Out of all smartshops I visited in Amsterdam this is definitely my nr.1
The staff explains everything very well, and they have the best selection of fresh Magic Truffles. Besides that they got a wide variety of other products, like herbal xtc’s and herbs that make you high, relaxed or energetic. Me and my boyfriend really enjoyed the Mexican Truffles. We laughed for hours! Hope we can come back soon! All the best to the friendly staff, hope to see you after Covid-Times.. 🙏🏽🥰
