  • The strengths of this museum are definitely the opportunity to make fun pictures, act like a star, parading as a supermodel, and so on. But there are a few rooms, missing some pieces that promote with the video presentation (Johnny Depp among others). I liked the Organization: I bought ik ticket online, so as to spare (if you buy a ticket with entrance till 11.30 costs 18 instead of 23), and especially to skip the line! Instead it remains equally blocked because you must make the picture, which obviously you pay, and you call one from row online and one from the normal one ... still forms the result row! Too bad.

  • We enjoined seeing all the characters, all of them are very realistic. It is quite small we was surprised that it was finished. We haven't seen few characters that we wanted to see, I assume we missed...  more »
  • Traveled to Europe a week were in Amsterdam, and did not miss a chance to get into such a popular place as Madame Tussauds, the figures look just like live, sometimes not even was. But it was pleasant very much.

  • It was quite a long walkthrough with many Dutch and international celebrities. Most looked very real, almost scary. I also liked the scenery and the catwalk where there was a guy with a fake French accent dressing us up. With a coupon it is affordable. I do not like the Obama replica, the colour and shape isn't right.
  • Standing in the long queue for tickets is worth waiting, as the art/wax museum is amazingly created. Nice creativity and talent must be praised. Best place for the artist and yes for the fans too, as they can get a picture with their wax status.
  • Well, I had doubts about this. Really did. It sounded like a symbol of bad taste. So I thought I will be a good father and suffer it though for the joy of my children. But it was fun. Yes, wax figures are still a bit tacky, but it is was in nice setting and kids really enjoyed it. It's not only the wax figures, but the entire experience - visuals, decorations, sound, lights. 5 stars for a family visit.
  • If you're short on time that maybe it would be a better idea to visit places more unique to Amsterdam (I've heard the London madam Tussauds is much nicer). It is good entertainment though. Tip: There are many places where you can take burst shots to make an animation of (e.g with Loki)
  • Not many but quint place to fantacize ones celebrity. Make sure to bring good low light camera. As flash only helps shine the statues.
