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.

    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.

    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. :)

    I was literally blown-away by how incredibly detailed, well-organized, and thoughtful this museum was. I used the English language headset and pushed every number in order and learned so much about this small country's war experience which has often been over-shadowed by other fronts. An experienced traveler who has been in hundreds of museums and art galleries around the world, this was a gem worth finding and worth the 2+ hours I spent there.

    Lovely space, nice shops and great vibe.
    I would have liked more vegetarian/vegan options in the food area, as I had limited choice.

    This very well preserved synagogue is certainly worth a visit. It is one of the biggest synagogues built by the jews fleeing from Portugal during the sixteenth century. We may admire the huge stone columns supporting the very high ceiling. In the basement the visitor may see a short film with the history of the sephardite jews as well as several cult objects, many of the centuries old. There are audio guides and a well done flyer.

    Another big and beautiful vintage canal house. You have beautiful living room on the upper floor as well as big and lovely garden in which you can sit. Perfect for fans of vintage.

    Visited the place with my wife and 3.5 year old! It was a great experience where we learnt a lot from Martin (tour guide) who very passionately showed us how the mill works and the overall history of it. I strongly recommend the same in your next visit to Amsterdam, especially when you are traveling with your children

    Really beautiful and well kept house, I enjoyed the visit very much. There was an information booklet and information on specific pieces in the rooms, I do feel an audio guide or some such thing would’ve been good, but I still learnt things from my visit. Glad that the current owners of the house do not gloss over their family’s problematic history, the display case on slavery was fascinating

    My wife did a Park Run here while we were on holiday. Easy to get to by bus from Amsterdam and then a really short walk. Lots to see and just relax.
    Nice community cafe by the entrance.

    Went here as one of the last things we did in Amsterdam before we all travelled back to our respective countries - we had lunch on one of the park benches a short walk away from the metal dome installation (whilst also having to shield our Albert Heijn lunches from some very large birds hissing around us) and then slowly wandered around the park for a bit before making our way back to the entrance. Absolutely wonderful experience, and a lovely change of pace from everything going on in the city itself.

    Even the inhabitants of Amsterdam themselves can learn from the displays in this museum and the audio-visual tour provided. The history of the canals, and especially the three added in the 17th century, the Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht, is fascinating and reveals much about the city. Highly recommended!

    This is probably one of the best museums we have ever visited - such a fantastic and intriguing architectural language by the Amsterdam School.
    We toured around the building and listened to some fantastic stories about the place and the history of Amsterdam.
    On top of a great experience we also had the chance to look at a fantastic exhibition by Fre Cohen, a very talented graphic designed who tragically killed herself during nazi occupation.

    Very excellent docent who gave us a history of pipes and showed us displays in chronilogical order with interesting facts. We were only 3 there and enjoyed displays and unusual art associated with the tobacco habit in past centuries. Getting inside a canal house was an added bonus.
