Reasons to Visit
Gunther von Hagens’ BODY WORLDS: The Happiness Project is an absolute must-see exhibition in the heart of Amsterdam. It tells the amazing story of our own body and the impact of happiness on our health. More than 200 anatomical specimens of real human bodies show the complexity, resilience and vulnerability of the body.
Nemo Science Centre
Using a variety of playful exhibitions, Science Center NEMO introduces young and old to the world of science and technology. Its five floors are filled with continuously updated exhibitions, theatre performances, films, workshops and demonstrations. Everything is interactive, so everyone can join in with the fun and learning, especially in NEMO's Laboratory.
We are all constantly surrounded by – even covered in – microorganisms such as bacteria. But while many people harbour negative associations with the word ‘bacteria’, most of them are actually good for us, helping us, for example, to protect our body against outside influences. At the innovative new Micropia museum, you can get acquainted with these invisible organisms. If you look at this world really closely, a new one opens up.
Artis Royal Zoo
Artis Royal Zoo was the first zoo to be established in the Netherlands, located right in the centre of Amsterdam. It is home to some 750 species of animals, including zebras, giraffes, elephants and chimpanzees. It is also home to the biggest Planetarium in the Netherlands.
Science Park Amsterdam
Amsterdam Science Park has a special focus on ICT and life sciences, and is home to several prominent research institutions as well as the University of Amsterdam (UvA) Faculty of Science. The park is a joint venture from the University of Amsterdam (UvA), the City of Amsterdam and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
Amsterdam Canal Cruise
An essential component of any trip to Amsterdam, a boat cruise along the canal can be arranged for you.
Bringing 500 years of dark history to life in one terrifying experience, The Amsterdam Dungeon, a relatively new attraction to the city, takes visitors on a virtual journey through its gruesome past. On arrival, the sight of skeletons and the sounds of dark, Gregorian chanting makes for an eerie welcoming to the horrors of medieval Amsterdam.
Walibi Holland Theme Park
This theme park enjoys a reputation as Europe’s top spot for rollercoasters. There are more than 50 attractions and shows.
This is the largest museum in the Netherlands. There is a large selection of paintings from the 15th century, until around 1850, as well as decorative and oriental arts. If you only have limited time, head for the Dutch Masters on the 2nd floor, including Rembrandt’s ‘Night Watch’.
Van Gogh Museum
Over 200 paintings and 500 drawings by Van Gogh are housed here, as part of the permanent collection as well as a selection of his Japanese prints and a good selection of work by his contemporaries, such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin and Monet.
Royal Coster Diamond Factory and Museum
On their tour you will learn why Queen Victoria, Empress Sisi and King Rama V of Siam not only trusted them with their diamonds but took the time to travel all the way to Amsterdam to witness with their own eyes how we crafted the most sparkling diamond jewellery. The tour also demonstrates how the diamonds are cut and polished and the museum has excellent interactive exhibits with a 5 - 10 minute introductory video presentation.
Palace Op De Dam
Situated in the centre of Amsterdam the palace was built as the city hall in 17th century. Renowned sculptors were brought to Amsterdam and famous painters such as Rembrandt contributed to the interior.
Efteling World of Wonders
The most popular tourist attraction in the Netherlands and one of the leading theme parks in Europe. The attractions are themed around ancient myths and legends, fairy tales, fables, and folklore.
Owned by the Willet-Holthuysen family this 17th century mansion was left to the city on the proviso that it be preserved and opened as a museum. The house is lavishly decorated and furnished in the fashion of the time and contains many rare objets d’art; glassware, silver, fine china and paintings.
This museum is almost impossible to miss as a giant orange man half inside and half outside the museum signifies that you are at the Corpus Museum, the world’s first museum to take visitors through the entire anatomy of the human body. Step inside the escalator, up the leg to the knee, journey through the intestines, the human heart right up to the tongue and pulsing neurons in the brain. A truly interactive journey through the workings of the human body. The museum is located just outside Amsterdam.
Science Centre Delft
The Science Centre Delft is the perfect place to release the scientist within you, where you can explore the endless possibility of Science. This state of the art technological institute allows visitors to see and experience the advance research that the Institute is undertaking. Different workshops are available for visitors to enhance their scientific skills and knowledge. As well as view the research materials and the end product of each project, visitors are encouraged to participate in science experiments making it both highly interactive and fun.
