“Nice place to hang out and take some rest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

This is a a good place to just have some rest and for kids to have a little fun in the park. We stopped here after making a visit to the diamond musuem. Dont go out of your way to see this, but if u happen to be around the museums, just take some snaps here

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is a beautiful park with fountains and sculptures, including the Iamsterdam (like at the airport) and is surrounded by the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh museum, and the Stadmuseum. Lotsof people picnicing, walking, biking, and playing frisbee. Wonderfully manicured lawns, surrounded by amazing architecture. Well worth it!

“Fun, but BUSY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

We walked through the Museumplein on our way to the Van Gogh museum, and hoping to take a photo with the iamsterdam sign (kitschy, but cool). However, by 10am there were SO many people here that it was pretty much impossible. There was no common courtesy or respect for those waiting - everyone was just pushing and shoving and walking in front of people to get what they wanted. Had we more time in Amsterdam we would have left and come back a different time of day. The grass field was full of picnicers - and a great location. All the public sculptures add to the area, and the large fountain/pond in the middle is beautiful and adds. Great place to take a "break". However, in the summer, the crowds of tourist from 10 - 4 at least, are unavoidable.
