Needing updated info on year-long Museumkaart use


My understanding, both from Rick's guidebook and from past posts, is that sometime in 2018 the Museumkaart changed it's rules. Intended for residents, it offers an initial 5 museum limit for the temporary card. With online registry, uploading a photo, paying an additional minimal charge, and having the new card sent to an address in the Netherlands, one can obtain an unlimited year-long pass. Rick's guidebook makes it sound like you could easily have it sent to a hotel or B&B. Given that we will be moving around every 2-3 days, and since I am not sure how quickly the card would arrive, I'm not sure if this will work for us. We are planning to spend 2 weeks in the Netherlands and would use the Museumkaart in Amsterdam and further afield if we can make it work. Has anyone done this since the changes mid-2018??

Thank you, Floris. "Within 5 business days" works for me! If you don't mind me asking, how did you come by this info? Is it on the Museumkaart website somewhere??

It is also my personal experience that the Museumkaart is delivered within a few days after registering.
