Admission includes audioguide. A nice museum but wouldn't be my first choice if time in Amsterdam was limited. It is part of the My Amsterdam Card.

Wasn’t too impressed with this museum. The layout was confusing and I felt like we missed a couple of bits. Couldn’t find the Remembrant! It was basically just a poor version of the Rijkmuseum and some of the exhibits were very similar! Was interesting to...More

This museum was much larger than I anticipated. You can access a "free sample." carpeted hallway pass through to and from the Begijnenhof to whet your appetite. Golden Age paintings and artifacts, WWII occupation and contemporary history.

Really enjoyed this museum. They did a very good job keeping it interesting while giving you a lot of information about the history of Amsterdam and the country. As they say in the audio tour, a bit of a maze but worth it.

I was walking elsewhere and walked by the Amsterdam Museum. The next day I went inside and was pleasantly surprised. I thoroughly enjoyed myself here, more so than the overcrowded Rijksmuseum! Lovely place. Next time I visit the city, I will be sure to come...More

The progression through the museum I find confusing. The collection is rich, but I didn't get the impression of following a common thread throughout the visit. The orphanage house, which is aimed at children, was very well done and full of secrets and hiding pieces...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
