Owner description: The Tropenmuseum is a museum about people, housed in an impressive listed building overlooking Amsterdam's Oosterpark. The extensive permanent display and regularly changing exhibitions feature objects that all have a story to tell about humankind. Stories about universal human themes like mourning, celebration, ornamentation, prayer, conflict. From Africa to West and Southeast Asia, from New Guinea to Latin America: come to the Tropenmuseum and discover that, despite cultural differences, we are all essentially the same.

“Good range of exhibit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

But if it's out of your way -- reconsider. The museum is big and in a good location. It's got a lot of cultural exhibits... Some environmental... Some art... But it didnt interest me much... It could be different to other people.

“MUST SEE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Spent hours in this museum - so much to see. Wide range of information available. Found the films and articles of the dutch colonial past disturbing (I am from the caribbean) but there's a lot more to see in this museum including history and articles on a wide range of countries. Also interesting are the views and experiences of present day immigrants and their children who were born in holland.

“A day in Amsterdam!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

A little jumbled and concentrating on the colonies but well described and welcoming and friendly staff. The availability of a wheelchair for the elderly would have been a welcome addition. The availability of lockers was great but they cost 50 euro cents. No concession for pensioners but definitely concessions for young people.
