School Trips

Experience 500 years of dark history of Amsterdam in The Amsterdam Dungeon. Put those school books away and step into the past with a history lesson you will never forget!

You! Yes, you! Just look... you are so desperately in search of a school trip for those little brats in your class. How sad! Listen up! Have you ever considered an outing to The Amsterdam Dungeon? It is a unique and exciting attraction where you are swept up into the most perilous moments of Amsterdam's past. Who will go to the stake, or be forced to empty the toilet bucket on board of the Dutch East India Company ship? Whether they succumb to fear or the giggles, your little brats will be an experience richer. History class was never so thrilling and fun! Do you dare?

Tip: trust no-one! Not even your well-behaved students!

Pssst! Listen! Did you and your little brats survive The Amsterdam Dungeon? Then you can make your day out in Amsterdam complete for a great price with one of our combination deals. Maybe you want to catch your breath amidst the stars in Madame Tussauds, or to take a canal tour, or to enjoy a delicious lunch at Luciën’s Pancakes: everything is possible.

Hollywood stars? Check! Singers? Check! Royals? Check!

At Madame Tussauds Amsterdam you can sparkle among the stars. Right in the heart of Amsterdam, drink a cup of coffee with George Clooney, get your picture taken with members of the Dutch royal family and pick up your paintbrush alongside world-famous artists such as Van Gogh and Rembrandt. Or is music more your thing? Then how about recording a duet with Adele in our recording studio, or joining DJs Afrojack and Armin van Buuren in our DJ booth. You’ll never see as many stars in Amsterdam as at Madame Tussauds.

Together with a visit to The Amsterdam Dungeon, this makes for an unforgettable school trip that they will talk about for a long time!
