  • Such a great museum lay out with a fantastic audio guide. Really takes you step by step through the history of the city. Great 2 hours experience. Give the temporary fashion exhibition a miss as it is rubbish frankly, The history of Amsterdam is laid out in a creative and interactive way, utilizing the very building itself to add dimension and interest to its presentation
  • Good place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Right next to the Kalverstraat. The restaurant here has good food and excellent coffee. Part of the museum is free of charge, where others are only accessible when buying a ticket. Definitely a place to visit when touring Amsterdam. I recommend it!
