Children under the age of 12 can visit all museums affiliated with the Nederlandse Museumvereniging free of charge. In our city, these include the Anne Frank House, the Tropenmuseum, Artis Geological Museum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Theater Instituut Nederland.

Madame Tussauds on Dam Square

TunFun, the funniest play tunnel in the Netherlands
In the heart of Amsterdam lies a secret play paradise: TunFun. In a tunnel under the city you can climb and clamber. There is also a spectacular slide and you can go crazy in the children's disco.
Take a look behind the scenes at The Music Theatre
What could be more fun than going to a music or theatre performance? Not much! Do you always wonder how it is possible for people to change clothes so quickly, or how they can change the scenery from day to night if you don't pay attention for a second? If so, you have to visit The Amsterdam Music Theatre for any questions you might have, because during a guided tour they will explain everything to you.
Children's museum in the Jewish Historical Museum
There is also a children's museum in the Jewish Historical Museum. Here children and adults can visit a Jewish family and learn more about their culture. They can learn to bake woven bread, challes, write Hebrew and play musical instruments.
The Rijksmuseum is also known as 'the Treasure House of the Netherlands'. It exhibits all kinds of historical masterpieces, from Rembrandt to Vermeer. There are also two doll's houses that reflect the life of the Golden Age, from furniture to traditional costumes. What's also nice to know is that young people up to the age of 18 can always enter for free.
