Top Things You Can Do As a Family in Amsterdam
Amsterdam has so many things going for it that it shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear it is an excellent family destination as well. Between its fascinating quaint architecture, rich history waiting to be explored in excellent museums, the incredible art displays, elegant canals and vibrant social life, you will never run out of options for entertainment with your family. Before looking at some of the best activities to do in the city, let’s first address a common question seen among those who plan to visit it.
Once I find myself at the airport, what is the best way of reaching my place of accommodation?
While public transportation is a good choice for your stay, we find it highly impractical for the first trip to the city. More often than not, the flight will leave you tired and stressed out, making you wish to quickly reach your hotel room so you can leave the luggage there. However, your desire will not be easily fulfilled when you have to look for the right routes in a place that you don’t know, and the trip will not come with the best conditions either.
What we would recommend is that you use Amsterdam airport transfer services instead. These come with an excellent combination of speed and comfort, all offered at surprisingly affordable prices. You will be able to get rid of the stress that appears when trying to reach your hotel while carrying weight on you, as professionals will take care of all aspects of the trip for you. The time and energy saved with this option will leave you ready to explore the city earlier. Here are some of the best activities to do with your family in Amsterdam.
- Visit Madame Tussauds
Madame Tussauds is the most appreciated wax museum in the world, and the Amsterdam branch definitely does justice to the name. The stunning realism of the wax figures is sure to be appreciated by visitors of all ages, as you could swear you are standing right next to famous personalities such as Lady Gaga, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, David Beckham or if you want to go further back in history, Albert Einstein.
The museum also has an interactive art exhibition that puts right inside the works of geniuses like Van Gogh or Rembrandt, among others.
- NEMO Science Museum
Don’t let the word “Science” scare you, as this museum comes to offer plenty of fun. Visitors of all ages can engage in playful experiences that reveal a fascinating look into science and technology. Numerous exhibitions, films, workshops and demonstrations serve to both educate and entertain, while the rooftop café provides an excellent place for your family to discuss the experience, as you enjoy the outstanding views of the city center.
A unique café that is ideal for families with small children. Besides having excellent playgrounds both outside and indoors, the place offers kids the chance of cooking their own meals. Needless to say, proper guidance is given by the staff and the conditions are built in a way that children are not exposed to any dangers.
Adults can serve a good selection of delicious drinks while enjoying the cheerful atmosphere of the place.
