The Museumkaart advantage

OUR MISSION

TIC is dedicated to supporting its international members. Read more About TIC.

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.
