Many of the major cities of the world have a Madame Tussauds and Amsterdam is no exception. Like its other famous namesakes, it is filled with wonderful lifelike wax creations of rich and famous people from around the globe.
It also has a collection of notable Dutch citizens including Queen Beatrix, Fredrick Heineken, Dutch explorers and Rembrandt. There is an interesting and extensive display featuring Dutch history, which is very informative.
Some of the displays can be very graphic, for example the pirates section is not for the squeamish and is not recommended for children under 12.
Many of the displays are interactive and you can even touch the wax figures, which certainly enhances the experience. Make sure you take you camera with you, as you are permitted to take pictures of all the exhibits except for the pirate and reception areas.
One of the most recent additions is that of the new United States President, Barack Obama, who replaces George Bush in the world leaders' display. When you enter the museum, you will have your picture taken by a professional photographer, which can later be purchased.
Madame Tussauds is open every day with a few public holiday exceptions. Times vary depending on the season, with extended opening hours during the summer time. During the high season, it is recommended to purchase your tickets online which will enable you to fast track your admission. Discounts are also offered for students, families, groups and children.
It is serviced well by public transport though it is possible to use your private car. There is no parking at the museum but there are several car parks close by.
