Things to do with Kids in Amsterdam

Who says Amsterdam is not a family friendly?

Well, I travelled with my family and found Amsterdam very family friendly place with a lot to do.

Its known as city of the Canals, so by just walking around the city or talking canal cruise itself is a great idea.

Amsterdam- The city of Canals

There are many museums in the city which kids would love to go. There are Couple of big parks and a Artis (zoo) too. But for us Nemo science museum was the one we loved visiting the most. You can easily spend the entire day there which we did until staffed said to us ” bus ker do ab han nay gher jana hay” ( we are closed now and we need to go home too 🙂 )

There are multiple floors with activities for kids of all age groups and parents were enjoying as much as their kids. I had a great time with Inayah and we did so many activities together.

Not to forget, Nemo science museum’s top floor has a great cafe and offers such an amazing panoramic view of the city of Amsterdam.
