Overall rating

Very practical if you are in Amsterdam for several days. You can reserve the timeslots for the museums and many museums are included. Important: book the I Amsterdam Card first and THEN the timeslots! And criss-cross the city by public transport

Efficient way to move around and tour Amsterdam. We’ve used the card for pubic transportation within the city (busses, trams, and the metro); and entry to most of the museums and attractions.

This card was worth every cent. We bought the four day card. Having access to all transportation and entry to museums, and a cruise, this card paid for itself in the first day!

Defo worth going , would say go on a sunny hot day and u probs spend a 3rd of ur day there .

Very practical city card, to be used in the vast majority of museums
