I visited Muiderslot as a young teenager and remember thinking how cool it was. Well, now, a good number of years later, that "cool" factor has gone away. The guided tour is in Dutch (it was in English before) and they give you a card to read about each room included in the tour. The information to read is out dated, too, as one of my more prominent memories was a painting of twins that died during the painting being done. The painting is still mentioned on the card, but the painting is no longer in the castle. We asked about it and were told it is now in the Rijksmuseum. They have installed quite a few little "games" for small kids throughout the castle and an area where they can put on little costumes and have pictures, I guess. The outside of the castle, and the gardens, are good, but the inside, and tour, was quite disappointing. They have really "Disneyfied" what could and should be a nice piece of history. It is easy enough to get to from Amsterdam, but not worth the time on public transportation.
