An interesting and interactive museum, without it being childish or annoying (which normally is the case with interactive museums). Great to visit if you want to learn more about Amsterdam!

In het Amsterdam Museum wordt op een interactieve, leuke manier de geschiedenis van Amsterdam behandeld. Leuk om zo alles te weten te komen over onze hoofdstad. Zelfs voor Amsterdammers volgens mij leuk en leerzaam.
