Overview

Highlights

  • This is one of the largest museums in Amsterdam, but bright and airy, so it never feels overwhelming. Hours pass quickly as you travel the globe!

  • Supplementary activities such as lectures, films, guided tours, music and theater shows bring the already vibrant exhibitions even more to life

Exhibitions

Afterlives of Slavery
Now on  - Dec 31, 2020

The Tropenmuseum's latest exhibition tackles the difficult issue of the Netherlands' relationship with colonialism and slavery – placing the voices and experiences of the subjugated at center stage. Bringing together stories from the past and present day, Afterlives of Slavery challenges the visitor to confront the legacies of slavery which still exist today.

Description

On the outside, the Tropenmuseum is an impressive Dutch brick building. Inside, it contains the whole world! Come explore what makes us humans all the same, without ever leaving Amsterdam's hip East.

The Tropenmuseum is dedicated to the enormous cultural diversity that enriches the world. Exhibitions about cultures from around the world show that despite cultural differences, we've got plenty in common. Kids, in particular, love the chance to investigate lives very different from their own.

The Tropenmuseum is located on the border of the Oosterpark, a stone's throw from some of Amsterdam's hippest bars and cafes. As it's a little out of the tourist 'blast zone' a visit here is comparatively relaxed.

An extensive cultural program with music, talks, workshops, and guided tours during weekends and holidays makes sure no day at the Tropenmuseum is the same.

Insider tip

The recently redone Oosterpark is right next to the museum and, with its large grassy areas and small ponds, offers the perfect setting for a picnic and/or cheeky nap.
