The drive through Amsterdam was very informative, but it is useful, at least in high tourist crowds, to bring some time. The visit to Ripley's was very interesting. Small minus point in the selection of the language. The information boards are only in Dutch and in English and unfortunately there are no other information brochures or audio guides. For me personally, it was not a problem, but if you do not speak the language, it's a shame because you do not understand the stories behind the exhibits.

O museu é muito interessante pelas excentricidades expostas e ao mesmo tempo divertido pela interação que permite ter, muito aconselhável para levar crianças ou adolescentes! O passeio de barco vale a pena porque nos dá uma visão diferente dos canais. Aconselho 100% este combinado!
