Allard Pierson Museum,
The Treasure house of the University of Amsterdam
Guaranteed: A hidden gem…Very few visitors !
Highlights of Antiquity, original objects from world cultures, Egyptian, Roman, etc. Full size Plaster Casts of the worlds finest sculpture. Better than a picture book. This little known gem of a museum actually holds internationally renowned collections in the fields of archaeology, history of books, cartography, graphic design, and zoology. Also Jewish cultural history. This is one of the most important heritage collections in Europe.
Antiquity comes to life at the Allard Pierson Museum. Richly decorated Greek terracotta to Etruscan urns and fragile Roman glassware: original artefacts have much to tell us about Ancient Greece, Etruria (the region in Italy to the north of Rome) and the Roman Empire.
Address: Located in the former Dutch National Bank building at Oude Turfmarkt 127. Near the Flower Market. Buying a dated / time ticket in advance is not necessary. You can buy your tickets at the building.
