What people are saying about Amsterdam Museum

It was so much fun walking around the city and just exploring. Never once thought “Are we lost”. The game shouldn’t take a lot of time, but we made it last most of the day since we were stopping a lot to take in the sites, shops and restaurants along the way. The game definitely hits “most” of the major landmarks and areas that you will want to visit while in Amsterdam.
