Madame Tussauds Amsterdam Tours

12 reviews
The Amsterdam outpost of the Madame Tussauds wax museum empire is filled with eerily accurate look-alikes, from Dutch royalty to internationally known figures from film, music, sports, and politics. Displays change regularly to keep things topical, though some classic figures, such as Marilyn Monroe and E.T., are constant fixtures.

The Basics
Madame Tussauds is a fun, family-friendly diversion for visitors to the Netherlands’ capital. Prebook fast-track admission and explore at your leisure, or save money by combining admission to Madame Tussauds with tickets to other popular Amsterdam attractions, such as the Amsterdam Dungeon and canal cruises. Free or discounted entrance to Madame Tussauds is also included on some Amsterdam sightseeing passes, and the museum features as a stop on hop-on hop-off bus tours of the city. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Save time waiting in line by prebooking fast-track tickets. 
  • Be sure to bring your camera; a big part of the appeal here is snapping photos with familiar faces. 
  • Madame Tussauds Amsterdam is stroller-friendly and wheelchair-accessible, though only two wheelchair users are able to enter at any given time. Book a spot in advance to ensure access. 

How to Get There
Madame Tussauds is in the historical center of Amsterdam on Dam Square in De Wallen, Amsterdam’s red light district. Amsterdam’s Centraal Station is just a 10-minute walk away. Alternatively, ride the tram to Magna Plaza/Dam stop (1, 2, 5, 17, and 20) or Bijenkorf/Dam stop (4, 9, 16, 20, 24, and 25). 

When to Get There 
Lines are not uncommon at Madame Tussauds, especially during the busy summer season. Buy fast-track tickets in advance to save time. For a quieter experience, avoid holidays and weekends, or try going in early evening.

Things to Do Nearby
If you’ve got a little time to spare, be sure to take a look around Dam Square. The large public square is littered with landmarks, including the neoclassical Royal Palace, the Gothic Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), and the National Monument, a white sculpted column that serves as a World War II memorial. It’s also a hot spot for buskers, with street performers of all varieties competing for tourists’ attention (and tips).
