Their main collection is on ancient Egypt and a lot of the lower floor is given over to this. It has objects from early Egyptian history to the Roman period. While there is not a huge amount in some areas they are of high quality.The...More

There is a lot of work going on at the Allard Pierson Museum at the moment, but don't let that put you off visiting because there is still a heck of a lot to see! The recently refurbished Roman area has many more English explanations...More

This is a small museum but if you are interested in Roman and Egyptian archeology then it's worth a visit. It's old school...no bells and whistles but everything was well explained and displayed. There is a cool area call the ArcheoHotspot where you can chat...More

Cute museum with Egyptian and Roman artifacts. That's it. Detailed description of the items. More educational than entertaining.

We were sad that the Etruscan collection was not viewable and the Roman collection only partially viewable, but our 3 hours in the ArcheoHotspot more than made up for any disappointment! Visitors are able to chat with archaeologists and archaeological-expert volunteers while trying their hand...More

The Allard Pierson Museum is a small archaeology museum but still have a nice collection to view, if you're looking for a shorter museum visit this may be a good one to nip into.

If you are really interested it is ok. The museum in Leiden (museum van oudheden) is better. You need a map to find the toilets etc. even with the map it is difficult to find your way.

Well worth a visit to this small archaeology museum. Very strong collection of Egyptian and Roman items. The Roman section is fairly new with English captions as opposed to the older not labeled in English Egyptian section. Definitely worth the time to see if this...More

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
