Did you know that TIC organizes activities that feature museums within the Netherlands at least twice a year? Did you know that whether or not you are visiting a museum with TIC or on your own, you can gain entrance often at a reduced price or for free with the Museumkaart?
|The Museumkaart (museum card) is an annual membership card available to (temporary or permanent) Dutch residents which gives unlimited free entry to approximately 400 museums in the Netherlands – including 38 museums in Amsterdam.|
The Museumkaart card program (also known as the Museumjaarkaart or MJK) has been running since 1981 and now has over 1 million card holders. You can apply for a Museumkaart at museumkaart.nl (Dutch only). You can also purchase a temporary (tijdelijk) Museumkaart over-the-counter at various museum (not all Dutch museums accept the Museumkaart); the list of museums can be checked on the website.
The following purchase prices are valid at least until 30 June 2017:
Adult Museumkaart €59.90
Child (age 0-18) Museumkaart €32.45
The card is great for the ability to just pop into a museum for 30 minutes and visit a new exhibition – and you won’t feel the pressure to see everything. Considering the current entry fees (€15-17.50) to get into each of the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Hermitage, Maritime Museum, NEMO and Stedelijk – means the card quickly pays for itself after just 4 visits. For expats and residents it can offer fantastic value over the whole year.
