Amsterdam Sights

Madame Tussauds Amsterdam

Fodor's Review

This branch of the world-famous wax museum, above the Peek & Cloppenburg department store, depicts Holland's glitterati, including Golden Age celebrities—there's a life-size, 3-D rendering of a painting by Vermeer (alas, the lighting is dubious), and an understandably displaced-looking Piet Mondriaan. Of course, there is also a broad selection of international superstars, including Barack Obama. Bring your own ironic distance, or skip it altogether: people-watching on Dam Square is much more entertaining than an hour and a half (their recommended tour time) wax-watching in Madame Tussauds.
