It is the perfect tool for having no head aches during the trip. We had 2 cards of 72h each and we visited only 3 museums, Rijkmuseum, Van Gogh and Amsterdam Museum, because it takes time to visit properly and these are the most important to learn also about Nederlands and Amsterdam history, i wanted to visit Rembrand but didn’t. No time. Anna Frank’ s house museum is not included, it should be…The card is very useful for the transport, we traveled a lot from a point to another. The city public transport infrastructure is the best i’ve seen. We use it for a canal cruise with Stromma. And also at parking at P&R Arena to prove we let the car 3 days for visiting the city. Otherwise, 90 euro instead of 3 So, useful, the time slot for museums was easy to reserve. Very good tool

A lot of great pieces to enjoy! The audio headsets that you can rent from the museum offer in-depth looks at Van Gogh’s life and thoughts for his artwork.

Fantastic museum. Extremely informative. Good for children. Spacious. Café is lacking otherwise would have happily spent the whole day there

Amazing Museum and the staff was very kind, but you must obey the time to enter. There is no possibility to enter early them you booked.

BEAUTIFUL EXPERIENCE AND SUPER ORGANIZATION ALL OK
