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

It was quite extraordinary to walk among those beautiful artifacts. You could almost feel the history while walking through Egyptian section. I would definitely recommend a visit to this amazing museum, especially if the weather is not so good.

Small archaeological museum with interesting exhibits from Egyptian/Hellenistic/roman eras. Price overrated 10euros for the size. Misses English translation in the 2/3 of the egyptian chambers Other than this it's an interesting visit that takes approximately two hours Adequate facilities.

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

Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
