We've been to quite many museum during our travels but the Tropenmuseum is something entirely different from the 'traditional' ones.

The museum has such a variety of exhibitions that you feel like you were in some kind of magic land where stories and legends come true. Though historical museum might conjure this kind of feeling of 'history-resurrected', the Tropenmuseum is much more magical and much more interesting.

You definitely should visit the museum, it would be a treat for the children too!
