The Tropenmuseum is a museum about people, housed in an impressive listed building overlooking Amsterdam’s Oosterpark.
The Tropenmuseum collection currently contains over 340,000 pieces, of which 175,000 are Material Culture (objects), 155,000 are photographic material (photographs, albums, slides, negatives), and 10,000 other imagery (drawings, paintings, documents).
Tropenmuseum Junior is designed to appeal to visitors aged six to 13. It opened in 1975, making it the oldest children’s museum in the Netherlands. Entering Tropenmuseum Junior is like stepping into another world, an immersive experience that stimulates all the senses and allows children to learn by doing.
The museum’s current hands-on Moroccan experience ZieZo Marokko takes our young visitors on a journey with Esmaa, Fatima, Nasrdin and Yousef to discover the land of their parents. Tropenmuseum Junior offers children a broad-minded view of the world.
