“Informative and interesting”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

Booked by email after a quick response to my emailed request for availability. The cost for the guided tour was a reasonable price.
Despite arranging to be included on the tour in Dutch, because that was the only one during our stay, the tour guide AND the other people all agreed to hearing the tour in English !!!!

Tour included meeting rooms and offices of former bank as well as current storage of the archives. We had time at the end to view the exhibition area, too.
A great hour in Amsterdam.

“Free & worth a visit if you're interested in Amsterdam's history”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

We stumbled upon this place after 6 years of living here. It's free to the public and worth a visit. Plan for about an hour or two, depending on your interest levels. You could easily spend an hour watching the old films on display in the quiet little auditorium inside.

Guided tours are possible on Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm for 6 Euros with advanced booking. To reserve a spot, send an email to: rondleidingen@stadsarchief.amsterdam.nl

For the latest information on the program on display in the auditorium (small theater), see:
