We were aware that the house is aimed at very young children (2-6 years). despite the screaming kids, the displays and information were very interesting for teens/ adults interested in Brunas life. If visiting with no children it is very cheap (I think around 2 euros each) be aware that they WILL NOT let you in before your time, even... More

Visited with an 18 month old Miffy fan. OMG what an amazing space for young children to run free! Every thing seemed to make our little visitor laugh out loud. Plenty of spaces for grown ups to sit down and rest their legs while the kiddies dress up, admire the wall art, cycle around, put on puppet shows, explore tunnels... More

Nijntje/Miffy brought to life in every way possible. Nice pastime for the young, not so for the old.

We visited with our 5 year old daughter as she loves Miffy (Nijntje), however we found the house to be a little boring it was just a big play area with room after room of activities for very small children and she was a little big to join in. She did enjoy the school room where there were coloring pages... More

I went here on a friday morning with my 2 children aged 2 and 3. There were so many people: it was hell. We had to wait in line for the entrance and also for the bathroom. Children were fighting over the bikes and games. It is big and there's lots of nice things to do for toddlers but at... More

Been there once with my museum card so entry was for free. Utrecht is the home town of Nijntje so this is a must-go museum, at least for once. Lovely small museum especially for kids. I doubt it's worth for adults to go a second time but I'm sure kids will love it.

we went here as acouple and with our 2 year old son a few years ago. There are play areas. For grown ups it's nice to see the drawings from Dick Bruna for the books.

Stayed for over three hours with a 3 and a 5 year old who loved everything. Now called the Nijntje museum after the renovation it's much better than it used to be. Much to explore and learn for children.

We really hoped that this museum would be interesting for our 4-year-old daughter but we were suddenly disappointed. Many things and books and playground with Nijntje / Miffy… but our daughter simply passed through them. Although we saw many other children enjoying their visiting this museum. Really nice souvenirs shop.
