About Tropenmuseum

The Tropenmuseum is a museum about people, housed in an impressive listed building overlooking Amsterdam’s Oosterpark.

The extensive permanent display and regularly changing exhibitions feature objects that all have a story to tell about humankind. Stories about universal human themes like mourning, celebration, ornamentation, prayer, conflict. From Africa to West and Southeast Asia, from New Guinea to Latin America: come to the Tropenmuseum and discover that, despite cultural differences, we are all essentially the same.

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.
