Most of my friends were a bit confused as to why this was high on my list of ‘to dos’ in Amsterdam, given I hated science at school and am far more comfortable learning about history or literature. So the fact that I found this...More

A very lovely experience, mostly takes part in a dimly lit (but with plenty of light where needed, and some fun use of black lights) and quiet hall. Very interactive and interesting exhibits, everything is very well explained and easy to use. I'd suggest it's...More

Wow! If you are looking for a different type or museum experience, try Micropia! It was very informative yet highly interactive verging on entertaining. A unique and interesting experience. Allocate 1.5-2.5 hours (seems a lot but once your there you won’t want to leave)! Amazing.

Educational, and very entertaining. Extremely well done. Just don’t go when it’s crowded because all the exhibits are hands-on so you want to avoid lines. Really eye-opening and fun, too.

This is a must thing to do.. Micro organisms can be so beautiful when seen under a microscope. Amazing shapes and colours.

This place is not for the germ phobic! But if you love science and a little nerdy activity this place is great! It's an attraction that's included with the iAmsterdam card so we just turned up and went in. They give you a stamp card...More

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

1 hour should be enough. But if you have the time there is enough there to keep you entertained for at least 2 :)
