This is what is mainly about if u come with kids. Several museums within a leisurely walk from each other. Enjoy the open areas as well. Plenty to do.

As I knew I wanted to visit a number of museums I bought the 31 day Museumkaart. You will break even on your 4th visit approximately. The added benefit is that you can use the group entrance at the Van Gogh museum rather than wait...More

I think the Museum Quarter is the best place to base yourself while in Amsterdam. As the name implies, there are plenty of museums, which do not stay open late. I like this because this area becomes quiet after dinner time and is a serene...More

A nice area of Amsterdam to visit, useful to be able to get tickets at all museums in the area from one place which then often gives times your visit can be made. Nice area to walk around, ample places to eat.

The museum quarter offered a lot to do. All of the museums were top notch. The outside I am Amsterdam section was a good place to people watch and have a glass of beer. There was an excellent playground for children.

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
