“On a hot day hang out by the sprinklers fountain”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

The fountain sprays at random - you can try to stay dry or you can just give in to the heat and t he joy of life and get soaking wet.

“A nice part of town to chill”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

It's about a 10 minute walk from Leidseplein. A nice open space surrounded the fabulous museums. A good place to walk and take some snaps even if you aren't going to the museums. Better later in the evening when it's less crowded. No place to buy food in the gardens itself but enough place to sit so get some food and have a picnic or a siesta in the afternoon.

“Lively outdoor park area”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

The Museumplein is easily accessible by tram. We stayed in this area, so it was a 5 minute walk. It is also close to Vondelpark. The museum park is family friendly with plenty of action and live music. A great outdoor space when you need a break from great art!

“Picnic spot!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Museumplein is scenic and a nice spot to take a break. I'd recommend going to a nearby grocery store (there is an Albert Heijn on Museumplein), grabbing a bunch of supplies (deli meats, cheeses, etc. - you can't barbecue here) and having a picnic on the grass! It's beautiful and relaxing and - on a warm day - there will be lots of people-watching opportunities.

“Good photo opportunity! ”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

This is where the I am Amsterdam sign is located, as well as various large museums. Plenty of photo opportunities and a great place to sit/picnic on a hot day.
