The permanent collection has interesting artefacts from the Ancients, even an Egyptian sarcophagus. The museum also offers activities for kids. If you were just planning on visiting the temporary exhibition for an hour or two, that's fine, but you could spend most of your day...More

We visited the museum for the special exhibition on colour photography before 1918, which is a great exhibition. On the second floor you could visit their permanent collection on Estruskian, Greek and Roman art. Very beautiful museum.

The Allard Pierson museum is on the iAmsterdam City Pass but admission is only 10 Euros for adults (5 Euros for Seniors). While there are many plaster casts and replicas, there are also many original objects that are worth taking a look at. The displays...More

A museum of two halves. The archaeology is not too hot; collection is small and too reliant on casts and replicas. The current exhibition is on colour photography before 1918 and that is truly superb - not what I went in for but captivating (runs...More

Although one section was closed for refurbishing but other sections were open and fun to watch. Take a rest at the coffee downstairs and kick off again to storm the vibrant city of Amsterdam

The museum is not very large indeed, but still impressive. The collections are very interesting, we spent almost 3 hours looking through them. Also, we had a really nice chat with the archaeologists who work there; they told us a bit about their work and...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
