Where do you want to visit in Amsterdam


Museum Vrolik


An Hour

Estimated Time

Incredibly interesting array of subjects and specimens. The entrance is free as it is within the university it is run by. There is no entrance fee, however, they do ask that a small donation is made which we did as there are so many unbelievable specimens. They are all laid out in a logical manner of being in different stages of growth, development or by body part. This is not for the faint hearted but for anyone with a interest or career in human anatomy or biology this is worth the train ride to the south of Amsterdam and the ten minute walk from the station. My partner works as a midwife and found everything amazing, something that she had never seen before. There must have been great skill to remove the foetuses in the near perfect state they were in. There is also quite a few animal exhibits too, meaning that a veterinarian or zoologist would definitely find some benefit here. The museum is not well sign-posted outside the building, but once inside it is a left from the door pointing towards the route from the station. The signs inside are hard to miss and if not, I'm sure anyone inside would be happy to direct you there.
