Should you buy the Amsterdam Museum Card?

Visiting Amsterdam means visiting a number of museums and making the most of your free time while you’re there, among other things. Without museum passes or priority tickets, you’ll have to wait in line at every museum and at every attraction. If you want to avoid this: the Amsterdam Museum Card is for you.

Amsterdam City Pass with priority tickets to 2 Amsterdam museums

Save money and avoid lines at the Rijksmuseum AND the Van Gogh Museum. Includes a round trip to and from the airport (or a parking space), an hour-long cruise on the canals of Amsterdam, and a 20% discount on other museums/attractions (e.g. the Stedelijk Museum, the Hermitage, the Heineken Experience, Madame Tussaud’s and much more!)

What we think:

You should buy this pass if your answer to the following questions is YES:

  • Do you want low-priced tickets while you avoid waiting in line for hours on end every time you visit a museum in Amsterdam?
  • Do you want to at least go to the Van Gogh museum AND the Rijksmuseum museum? (if you only want to visit one of these, get the Amsterdam City Pass instead)
  • Are you getting to the city via the Schiphol Amsterdam airport and do you want to get to downtown Amsterdam by train without waiting in line to get a ticket?
  • Would you like to go on a cruise along the canals of Amsterdam?
