Our two boys are 5 and 7, we'll be heading to the Van Gogh museum and the Anne Frank Museum. What else? Also, We've heard you can hire bikes at train stations? Is this true and can you get bikes suitable for kids?

FYI - we're here with two kids aged 5 & 7 and the Dutch have these great bikes where the kids can sit in a kind of giant pannier at the front. By far the best place we found to hire one from was http://www.black-bikes.com/ which is centrally located. They also had family tandems if you have older kids on tow.

With young kids you'll find the Dutch have many excellent public play areas around with some of the best in the Vondelpark.
A canal boat cruise is unforgettable and the big tourist boats are extremely popular although you could try a more upmarket experience with the Intercontinentals Canal Boat or a personal experience by personally in a small boat by a local is even better.
If you had teens, I'd suggest Madam Tussauds on Dam Square is a classic experience for the whole family http://www.madametussauds.com/Amsterdam/en/Default.aspx
Alternatively, next door is the Amsterdam Dungeon which is made into an unforgettable experience by the staff who are dressed up and act as characters from the scary historical events of Amsterdams past - five star experience.

If your kida like science, you have to visit NEMO. It is a very interactive museum and I loved it as a kid! about 7 years agoAnswered by maartje via WorldNomads.com
Just outside Amsterdam is a village museum with the old houses and windmills and also a cheese maker if you want to see the historical things. If you rent bikes be careful, the bike traffic can be brutal especially if you don't know your way. about 7 years ago
