My family (husband and 2 kids ages 11 and 12) will be in Amsterdam for 3-4 days. We plan to see several of the popular museums (Van Gogh, Rijks, Ann Frank house, Dutch resistance museum and royal palace). I was planning on getting the Museumkaart pass which allows entries to 5 different museums. I just did the math and the pass is worth it for my husband and myself but the kids under 12 are free in most of the museums. (The two museums which are not free have minimal fee of €6).
My questions are:
1) should I buy the kids Museumkaart pass (which is approximayely €30)?
2) how does the pass work; especially for Anne Frank House (which requires 2 month advance purchase of tickets) and Van Gogh museum (which requires timed entry)?
3) do I purchase the pass in advance or once I arrive in Amsterdam?
Please help! I am open to any/all recommendations. Thank you in advance.
