iAmsterdam or Holland Pass

New to traveling to the Netherlands; Which card is better to get? What is your experience with each? We definitely need transportation since we are heading to multiple places, but we also want to see museums, etc.. Any help is always appreciated. Our plan is to stay up in Kerkbuurt (North of Amsterdam) for a few days and then head to Delft and lastly Haarlem before leaving.

not really familiar with the Holland Pass;it was not available when we were there this past spring; however, it sounds like it works similarly to the now defunct TripKey, except you can also purchase museum tickets too
Holland Pass appears to be a one-stop shop and your train tickets have to be purchased ahead of time. So you would have to stay with your itinerary?
The other option is to but the OVChip Card for transportation and purchase your museum tickets separate.

Would like to hear about others experiences with the Holland Pass

Take care with the train tickets they have on offer. Their Day Train Ticket is good value for a longer day trip, but not for short distances or single journeys. Amsterdam to Delft, e.g., costs EUR 13,80 from the machine at a railway station. Besides the Day Train Tickets are not valid during peak hour (till 09.00 on weekdays).
