If you're planning to visit more than a few museums in the Netherlands, it pays to buy a Museumcard. It gives free entrance to over 400 museums throughout the country, including all major ones in Amsterdam.
For most museums tickets for adults range EUR 8,50 to 15,- .
A Museumcard costs around 45 Euros (under 25 years 25 Euro), and is valid one year. So, quickly worth the investment.
Plus, there's another great advantage : you can go to the same museum more than once. Especially convenient for the large museums, for coming back a second time with more focus.
And don't forget that multitude of charming small museums you're bound to stumble upon when visiting. With a Museumcard you'll sooner hop in, and have a look. That's just how it works.
So in all respects, a Museumcard helps you being flexible with your visit to the Netherlands. And with Dutch climate in mind, that too is something to keep in mind. See page When to visit what.
A Museumcard can be bought in museums (not in the very small ones). After you filled in a form, and paid, you can use the card immediately.
On the Museumcard website www.museumjaarkaart.nl, there's a museum list, and you can order one online. But the website is in Dutch only.
As a special service for my guests, I can buy a Museumcard for you in advance. Not only will you have it without delay, there's more. To avoid the long lines at the Anne Frank House for instance, a reservation is advisable. Without a Museumcard, you'll pay the full price, EUR 9,50. With a Museumcard you pay only EUR 0,50 for the reservation.
Please send a mail for the possibilities.
