I am finalizing our itinerary and could use some help planning the "east side" of central Amsterdam. This will be in early April with kids 6 and 8.
I understand that kids love NEMO, and that it can be surprisingly entertaining for adults as well. However, I'm skeptical about spending a few hours of our 2-day trip there, since there are also cool science museums in the U.S.
Scheepvartmuseum, on the other hand, seems uniquely Amsterdam and also great for kids. I'm leaning to this instead of NEMO, but am open to suggestions. I know the Tropenmuseum is also a winner, but that seemed like a 3rd place option.
We'll also visit the major Amsterdam sights, but I thought it would be nice to go to a "fun museum" since Amsterdam has so many options.
