Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Very educational and at times emotional museum. To actually see where Anne Frank and the families were in hiding is very moving. I am unsure why other reviewers state they feel underwhelmed at 'the bare rooms', at the end of the tour in the museum section there is text that explains that the rooms were kept bare following the wishes of Anne Frank's father as this is what he had requested. There are also models of the rooms how they looked while the families were in hiding should people wish to see this
    I would advise to book in advance as you cannot buy tickets on the day and as expected it does get booked up in advance
    Would advise anyone visiting Amsterdam to make the trip here

    Very much enjoyed the visit especially the fact the audio tour was included in our ticket. The Museum did provide an interesting outlook on Van Gogh's life and his paintings over his life. However, it was very busy and the flow of the galleries meant that there were bottle necks and at times difficulties in spending time to take in the artworks because so may people were "milling" about. Worth a visit but go early in the day.

    I personally love walking around and this was a lovely place to walk around. The canals and the houses give you a cozy and pleasant feeling and the shops are interesting and cute

    Expansive park with lots to do--bike, walk, photography, play with the dog, children's playground, rose garden, birding, cafes and events. Clean and safe.

    A wonderful place to spend time. Large selection of animals and you can get up close to many of them.

    A chapel in an attic? It will amaze you to see it, and learn its history.
    Remember to check where the pulpit was kept- on the left side of the seats is a very small video showing where it is.
    The whole place was fascinating.

    Really enjoyed my time here - There was no queue to get in if you have a digital ticket and you get a free (and very detailed) audio tour.

    The tour focuses on the 1st floor, in the rooms surrounding the impressive Citizen's Hall which are all beautiful and well worth seeing if you're in the city.

    My only critique would be I would have wanted to see more of the palace, however, I understand these are working buildings and that is not always possible.

    These trams are constantly crisscrossing the city. Definitely need a map for this. Don't forget to scan your card when you board and also when you get off.

    There are a lot of small scale models of historic ships. But we really enjoyed exploring the ship Amsterdam.

    Take elevator to the sixth floor and access cafe and overlook of the city. Childrens Library is very well designed.

    Dam Square is nice to see, but it also has so many streets leading off to explore, so you will get to see it more than once. It's easy to find, so very useful for planning routes to other attractions as well.

    We struggled to find it- our fault, our map was basic- but I'm so glad we finally did.
    It's amazing to walk in and feel the peace. The chapel was beautiful, and the Houten Huys (one of the oldest in Amsterdam) is worth seeing.
    Read the plaques- its history is so interesting, and remember people are actually living here, so don't treat it like a fairground. :)
