Things to do in Amsterdam with kids

Things to do in Amsterdam with kids I visited the Dutch capital recently with my ten year-old son. We had a great time and it’s definitely somewhere I’d recommend for families. Here are some ideas for things to do with kids there.

Make a splash

Just in front of the famous Rijksmuseum is an attractive, formal garden with manicured hedges and grassy areas displaying sculptures. The garden is free to enter and at its centre is an intriguing modern water sculpture called Hide and See(k) by Danish artist Jeppe Hein. Water shoots up every so often in different formations from ground level. If you’re brave enough, you can stand in between the water jets and not get very wet. Or you can just go for it and get wet. There are chairs and benches to sit on in the garden and a stylish kiosk selling drinks and snacks.

Play on some letters

There are some solid, giant red and white letters spelling I Amsterdam which sit on Museumplein in front of the Rijksmuseum. The letters are part of a city marketing campaign and are just waiting to be climbed and sat on. This is a great place for a photo stop.
