“Lovely open space”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Stopped by this plaza en route from the Van Gogh Museum to the Rijksmuseum. Great to see so many people enjoying the amenities. Recommend a drink or bite to eat in Cobra, overlooking the water feature. There was some great breakdancing and body popping from a group of guys going on the day we visited.

“Nice area...but full of tourists.”
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”
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”
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”
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.
