Fodor's Review

Once the repository of the nation's gold supply, this former National Bank with its stern Neoclassical facade is now home to archaeological treasures from the collection of the University of Amsterdam. The museum traces the early development of Western civilization, from the Egyptians to the Romans, and of the Near Eastern cultures (Anatolia, Persia, Palestine) in a series of well-documented displays. The building, which is currently undergoing a phased renovation set to be completed in September 2018 (but remains open to the public), is also connected to the University of Amsterdam's Bijzondere Collecties (Special Collections) showcase with interesting exhibitions .
