"Buy Amsterdam Pass and save money" IAmsterdam Card & Passes Tip by mustardgirl

IAmsterdam Card & Passes, Amsterdam: 21 reviews and 12 photos


Favorite thing: It's great way to save money for a first time visitor who plans to visit something besides coffeeshop. Pass gives you unlimited use of public transport and free entrance to numerous museums (including Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum). You’ll also get a free map (a very good one with street index) and a guidebook, which gives a brief review of all the museums.

Passes area available for 24, 48 and 72 hours/ price 26, 36, 46 eur. Read more about the Pass on Internet -

My personal experience is that 48-hour pass is not enough. There is only limited amount of culture one can enjoy in a day. The price might seem a bit too much at first but just by visiting 2 museums, taking two boat trips on the canals and use the tram - you have won already.

I think I read from somewhere that you don’t have to queue - but this isn’t true. Just by showing the plastic card to the security wont allow you the entrance. You will still have to stand in line so they can pull your card through and give you the ticket.
