We ended our Amsterdam trip with this museum and so glad we did! It was interesting, bizarre, sometimes frightening (we went at night around an hour and a half before closing and there are quite a few motion-sensor exhibits) but an enjoyable experience overall. Perhaps the most enjoyable thing however has been reading the Google reviews...
The collection is quite good and interesting, but there are way too much people in there. If you try to read every description and look everything closely, the crowd makes it almost impossible. Otherwise I recommend to visit for everybody, it's a good quality and well managed collection, and also very cheap.
