  • Witness dazzling art and objects from ancient civilizations
  • See the extensive permanent collection, spread across five halls
  • Learn about how these ancient civilizations compare to contemporary European culture and marvel at how the world has changed

Can't get enough of flea markets? Fans of old stuff will love picking through the treasures at Allard Pierson Museum - the archaeology museum of the University of Amsterdam. You can't take anything with you, but you do get to try your hand at archaeology with multiple hands-on exhibits. Ancient civilizations are revived and artifacts dating from 4000 B.C. to 1000 A.D., will truly open your eyes to the ways of old.

Besides the changing exhibitions, you'll get to see a permanent collection that's displayed in five separate halls. Check out original antiquities and ooh and aah at objects reflecting ancient traditions.

The Allard Pierson Museum explores the significance of ancient civilizations and how they challenge contemporary European culture. History is brought to life through interactive segments which allow you to unearth your inner archaeologist – eat your heart out Indiana Jones!

The top archaeological collection was established in collaboration with talented students, expert researchers, and cooperating institutions. Prepare to be amazed.

Don't miss the Archeohotspot! You can really get your hands dirty, and help the archaeology team reconstruct pieces of porcelain from all over the world.

This museum has a beautiful collection of antiquities! The most exciting (but also terrifying) thing was to work with the archeologist on rearranging porcelain platter (be sure to handle it with care).

Was er voor de DWDD tentoonstelling en heb enorm genoten. Helaas te weinig tijd om de rest van de exposities, maar ook zeker het gebouw te zien. Dat betekent dus terugkomen :) :)

Museum oogt wat gedateerd. DWDD is een leuke museum snack. Toegankelijk, overzichtelijk en daarom leuk om even tussendoor te bekijken. Tevens een leuke kennismaking met andere musea.

DWDD pop-up bezocht. Veel mooie exposities. Met name die van Sybrand, Daan en Paul hebben veel indruk gemaakt
