    An odd but decent place to kill time if you don't want to wait in the long lines across the street for Van Gogh
  • Larisa G.
    Pretty much an hour-long commercial for Bols, but not a bad way to kill some time.
  • Adelia C.
    Fun & silly way to spend an hour. Ask to taste the genever at the end of the tour!
  • Ken A.
    Great fun with friends. Activities for all the senses. Smell testing, tasting and lighting show. Make-your-own cocktail included in the price. Good value

    If you're an appletini person you'll probably enjoy this. If you are an old fashioned, Martini, or craft beer person, you can still have fun here but it won't be what you're hoping for

    Tour is a little boring. Cocktail workshops are awesome

    It's a fun place, really liked the blind smell test. The cocktails are mixed by pro's and at 5€ a pop, it must be the best value in Amsterdam.

    The museum is very small but the "smell-room" was fun.. the free cocktail was horrible for my taste (not much variety to chose) but we had a few shots of different drinks which were really nice :)

    Short, but sweet interactive tour of a surprisingly historic brand. Tickets are €13 online and includes entry, a free cocktail and a couple of tasters. Extra cocktails are only a fiver each.

    Get a Dutch & Stormy. It's so good and strong but doesn't taste strong. You now have a nice little buzz to go back to the rainbow room and take a ton of photos, do a kartwheel, it's your world.

    Een klein museum (+/- 1uur) maar leuk gemaakt en met achteraf een zelfgemaakte cocktail voor de bezoeker. Ideaal om dan nadien een restaurantje mee te pikken.

    Tek olayı içeride kokteyl ikram edilmesi. Müze kısmında pek bir atraksiyon yok. Strawberry cheesecake kokteyli başarılıydı.

    Интересная идея для пятничного вечера, можно продегустировать весьма вкусные и экзотичные коктейли и шоты, и уже подшофе взять пару бутылочек домой) очень вкусный ликер со вкусом йогурта и личи

    El "tour" es súper corto, no como el de la Heineken. Pero la gracia es que es más barato tomarse los tragos que vienen incluidos, a cualquier trago en un bar de Ams.

    Отличное место! Стильный музей. Прикольные тесты на вкус. Дорога сюда тем, кто любит коктейли. За 5€ 1 коктейль, но это сейчас спец предложение, обычно 6,5€, всё равно не дорого.

    Binbir çeşit aromayı önce koklayarak tanımak, sonra da bu aromaları içeren kokteyllerden seçim yaparak tatlarını deneyimlemek... Mutlaka Amsterdam'a gelinirse uğranılması gereken bir mekan.
