Tropenmuseum  



 
 
Every child will love the Tropenmuseum (Tropical Museum). Originally started as the museum of the Dutch colonies, it’s come a long way since and nowadays the exhibitions display art, objects, photographs, music and film from non-western cultures in general, giving an insight into the daily lives of the people of the tropics and subtropics. This is a great museum both for grown-ups as for children (even very little ones as they will love the colours and sounds).
