“Nice area...but full of tourists.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

It's nice to get an ice cream, sit by a fountain, or just people watch. But it's crowded with tourists heading into the museums. Fun, but not particularly relaxing.

“Lots to do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

The Museumplein is a great place to spend a day. Whether it's relaxing on the carefully manicured lawns or wandering enraptured through the Rijksmuseum that dominates the scene, you can spend at least a good part of your day in Amsterdam dedicating yourself to a few of Holland's best museums.

“THE place for art lovers in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

In addition to the three superb museums, the grounds are fun to stroll in and there is a play area for children. Lots of locals enjoying the sun, playing casual football, biking, etc.

“The famous I AMSTERDAM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

I was so happy when I spotted this sign! This is a very busy area but its funny watching all the people climbing on the sign trying to get a good picture. There are also food stalls around and of course its 1 min away from the Rijks Museum and Van Gough. SO its a great spot to relax in between museum visits.

“great open space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

A great open space. hub of museums, street performers, out-door music, people watching, small shops and food vendors. A pleasant distraction between visiting the historical museums
