"Archaeological Museum" Allard Pierson Museum Tip by codrutz
Allard Pierson Museum, Amsterdam: 7 reviews and 8 photos
Archaeological Museum of the University of Amsterdam, or ALLARD PIERSON MUSEUM is also a great place to visit in Amsterdam. In the recently installed Egyptian department you can see a model of the Pyramid of Cheops and other pyramids at Giza, and mummies and funerary and ritual objects; a computer prints out your name in hieroglyphics. Ancient Greece, Rome, Etruria, and Cyprus are among the best represented of other cultures, with pottery, sculpture, glassware, jewelry, coins, and household objects.
The Allard Pierson museum of archaeology is rather quiet, with not so many visitors, and you can take your time and admire the nice antiques (really antiques pieces of art .. or just pieces of that times - that's also very valuable after few thousand years).
Address: Oude Turfmarkt 127
