Have you always wanted to look closely at an original painting by Rembrandt? Or to discover the world’s largest collection of works by Van Gogh? Amsterdam boasts an array of interesting museums, including many that are world famous. If you are thinking of visiting a couple of museums in Amsterdam, we would recommend that you buy a Museum Card (Museumkaart).
The Museum Card offers you free entrance to around 400 museums in the Netherlands, 34 of which can be found in Amsterdam, including Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, Van Gogh Museum, Hermitage Amsterdam and the Anne Frank House. When you have visited just four museums during your stay in Amsterdam, you have already covered the cost of the Museum Card. With this card you could also consider a visit to the Teylers Museum in Haarlem, the Netherlands’ first and oldest museum, which has been open to the public since 1784. Haarlem is just a 15 minute train ride from Amsterdam Centraal station.
The Museum Card costs € 54,95 (€ 27,50 for people under 18 years of age) and is valid for 1 year. You will receive a leaflet with more information about the card, together with the names of the participating museums, when you make your purchase.
In Amsterdam a Museum Card is obtainable at the following museums:
