“good but not special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

okay yeah its a novelty, its cool to see, and yes i got a photo taken at it. but its so busy and people are clambering over it to get photos. its a bit un-personal. it is clean and beautiful but not something that strikes me as a huge tourist attraction. i wouldnt go back to this part of amsterdam

“Take a break here...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Nice, clean park where you can relax between museums and admire the surrounding architecture, let the kids blow off some steam, eat a quick bite, etc.

“Msueumplein is happily what is more or less used to be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is the place where you will finds the most important museums of the city, but it is a nice place to stick around for a while, playing soccer with locals or just watch the people going by.

“Relax between sightseeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Museumplein is the square between 3 of the biggest museums in Amsterdam, Van Gogh, Modern Art and Rijksmuseum. So it is a great place to relax between seeing these museums, take a picture next to the giant ''I amsterdam'', have a coffee and buy some souvenirs.
In my visit I saw a lot of locals having a picnic there, and I totally recommend it.

“Couture shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Couture shopping Amsterdam style, really relaxed and laid back place to pick up disigner gear if you don't like the crows in Knightsbride or Bond Street this would be good place to max out on your credit card.
