  • This is mainly an exhibition about how wicked the Dutch colonialists were, oh, and there was another exhibit about plastic in the oceans. If you are woke and like being preached at at, you'll love...

  • I want to like the Trop but it just didn't do it for me. Half the museum was closed for renovations during my visit and the other exhibits were lackluster compared to the other museums I visited in...

  • Unfortunatelly this museum doesn't reached me. There was some interesting spiritual stuff, but that's it. The first floor was closed because of some maintenance. Fortunately the entry was free with Amsterdam City Card.
  • Huge museum worth visiting, theme is appropriation of different nationalities and cultures, I think it is great, i truly believe that we should learn about people around the world instead of hating them or forbidding to use our culture, spreading the word, it will help authentic traditions in clothes, hairstyles and etc to live long and not be lost! you can take a break and get to the restaurant and then back to museum, i really loved Ceasar salad there and they have amazing vegeterian burger made from jackfruit which you should try! Oh and you can also buy there cool items, i personally got nice stones from there so lovely
