As a child i had to go here, fieldtrips with my school and i loved it. But also with my Indonesian grandma and my aunty i used to come here. I think it's the most visited museum in my book while i was still growing up in Amsterdam. It's worthed, totaly worthed. The Tropenmuseum (English: Museum of the Tropics) is an ethnographic museum located in Amsterdam, Netherlands, founded in 1864.One of the largest museums in Amsterdam, the museum accommodates eight permanent exhibitions and an ongoing series of temporary exhibitions, including modern and traditional visual arts and photographic works. The Tropenmuseum is part of the Nationaal Museum van Wereldculturen (Dutch Museum of World Cultures), a combination of three ethnographic museums in the Netherlands. Until March 2014 the museum was owned and operated by the Royal Tropical Institute, a foundation that sponsored the study of tropical cultures around the world.
The Tropenmuseum is an anthropological museum located in one of the most beautiful and impressive buildings in Amsterdam. Founded by the royal institute for the study of tropical cultures, their exhibitions focus on the culture and daily life of societies around the world - from Asia and Africa to Latin America. They have all sorts of object arrangements that represent the home life and rituals of different societies, their customs on weddings and burials, and other important events and celebrations. One of the most interesting museums to spend an afternoon wandering around their three-floor exhibition space.
Had to go on a field trip with my class here and thought it would be majorly boring. Yeah, about two minutes in the building I was ready to ditch my kids to do something fun! I ended up coming back a second time to see all the things I missed. 90% of everything is translated into English which is helpful and most exhibits are very interactive. Favorites include the scale model of a Middle Eastern home and cafe, the mask room (the glass walls project a video of the festival associated with the mask so you feel like you're there), the "love couch" with Persian love story(it's on the ceiling so you literally have to lie down to see it) and the videos showing festivals and weddings from around the world. The downside to all the interactivity is that some things break with overuse so the African dancing pad was broken as well as a few other features. But overall, very nicely done. I'll have to come back again to see several things in more detail.
It was very good
Tropical Museum, located in Amsterdam, is the largest museum of tropical customs in the Netherlands. The Museum has indoor and outdoor exhibition areas. When you enter the gate, you will get a small and exquisite handbook. The museum exhibits tropical civilized customs and various excavated cultural relics.
Very nice to do with kids!
The exhibits are very interesting. At the same time, the settings and organizations are more humane, and many of them can interact with each other. There are eight ongoing series of permanent and temporary exhibitions, including modern and traditional visual arts and photographs. The Royal Tropical Research Institute, owned and operated by the Tropical Museum, is worth visiting.
This is a very interactive and good organization. It took me almost a whole day to go there for the first time. It was a very interactive and good organization. It took me almost a whole day to go there for the first time. This is one of the most interesting museums I have ever visited.
