auch nach -zig Jahren reizt mich dieses Museum jedesmal wieder aufs neue mit seinen verschiedenen Ausstellungen und den Einblicken in die Rolle der Niederlande in der Kolonialzeit more »even after -dozens of years, this museum attracts me again and again with its various exhibitions and insights into the role of the Netherlands in the colonial era.
To be honest it wasn't quite what I was expecting. It became clear quickly that the museum would appeal to children more so than adults. I went to see the Japan exhibition and I felt it was limited. If you have a real interest in anime and models then it would have been more interesting. If you have a family and want to entertain the kids then it is a good place to go.
What a stunning museum! The exhibition cool Japan, longing for mecca and New guinea were Just spot on. Well set up and truly making it worth to visit
