Museumplein Tours

Amsterdam’s museum quarter – or Museumplein – is home to the three most important and revered museums in Amsterdam – the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art, and the Van Gogh Museum. The surrounding area also features some exclusive shopping, the largest city park in Amsterdam (the Vondelpark), along with a whole host of other attractions. 

The Museumplein is a place that attracts Amsterdam’s visitors and locals in equal measure – where international art-lovers mingle with local children playing football on the grass. In 1999 the main square was transformed from a simple 19th-century paved square into a large field with a pond at its centerpiece. 

Located to the south of the Museumplein, Amsterdam’s world-famous Concert Hall can accommodate up to 2000 people and is international recognized for its outstanding acoustics. Between the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum sits Coster Diamonds, where visitors can discover the process of polishing and cutting diamonds on a free guided tour. Meanwhile, the nearby P.C. Hooftstraat shopping street is home to some of the world’s most chic and exclusive fashion outlets – and is one of the most expensive shopping streets in The Netherlands. 

Practical Info

The Museumplein area is served by tram lines 2, 3, 5, 12, 16 and 24. The Canal Bus (a hop-on/hop-off canal boat line) also stops just across from the northern entrance to the Vondelpark.
