Amazing buildings with amazing collections of art, archeology, real footage of historic events, all about Amsterdam's history, (sub)culture, ambitions, growth, revolutions...

Excellent, really enjoyed it. We went on Sunday and it was €15 euro per adult with a free audio guide. Took headphones to plug in and off we went. Really cool and modern exhibition. Learning about Amsterdams history was really interesting, enjoyed learning about the origins of a city that is forward thinking and open minded and how that has endured through Amsterdam’s culture. They don’t take cash anymore, from Jan 2020, you have to pay by card. Ask for €1 coin at the counter to put your stuff in the lockers, they lend you the coin that you give back at the end.

If you are interested to know about the history of Amsterdam and all their fantastic journeys in the past, this museum is definitely the right place. Also, beside their main museum, there are other exhibitions that are nice. You need to spend around an hour to fully visit the main halls!

The museum promising to get knowledge of the history of this city. Basically you can walk just trough the side door path from main entrance and enjoy a unique carpet and keep your discovery direction to spui. I always liked to skip the busy shopping street and get some breath in secret garden in the neighborhood. (Begijnhof)

A handful of interactive and informative exhibitions. Price of entry matches most museums in the city centre, but you get your fair return in well-presented material.

This museum is in the city center. Mostly it’s about the city history. Kind of boring to me. But the architecture is great.

Amsterdam is probably my #1 city, although Heidelberg, Germany is a close 2nd. The museums here are extensive that have to be seen. We managed most of them, but because we didn't see all of them we'll need to go back. Darn!

Gives a very great review of Amsterdam history. It is laid out very nicely as well so that the timeline makes sense. There are interactive pieces during the tour as well. If your not a history connoisseur then pass on this. If you dont take advantage of the audio and actually read/interact with the pieces then you might want to find a different activity for the day.

Very nice and large! The Amsterdam DNA takes 45 minutes at least alone! We barely scratched the surface of this museum and it was very cool and interactive. Lots of languages available for the audio tour that you keep with you.

Martin Vasilev 5 years ago

Interesting stuff to see and hear. If you want to learn about Amsterdam history this is your place. Also it has an audio guide which is mandatory if you want to learn about Amsterdam. The place is big enough compared to the other major palaces and might take around two hours to give it a tour, that includes hearing everything from the audio guides.

Christina McDade 5 years ago

I enjoy museums that give history, interaction, and uses modern technology. This museum has it. With interesting exhibits about the history of Amsterdam and how it relates to world history with its timeline throughout, it's worth a visit. Bring non apple iPhone headphones because you can't use them with the audio guide.

Amazing place to easily get lost with the amount of artifacts this museum houses. The layout is a little confusing and maze like but it kind of makes it fun to navigate every corridor and level. They do have maps which do a pretty decent job about explaining where everything is. I still had to backtrack quite a few locations just to get a second look at some of the stunning artifacts. The audio guide is extremely helpful and I thoroughly enjoyed learning all about the history of Amsterdam.
