Olympic Experience Amsterdam Reviews
Not worth visiting Mar 11, 2010
The Olympic Experience in Amsterdam, consists of the stadium and museum. Amsterdam had hosted the Summer Olympics in 1928, and this was the first time the Olympic flame would be introduced in the modern games.
The Olympic Stadium has been renovated and used for multiple events since the Olympics. You can enter and walk around the track, and see the cauldron where the flame was lit for the first time in the modern Olympics. Not really much to see. Then again, I’m not much of a fan of stadium tours.
There is a museum that highlights the Dutch and their sports, plus different aspects of the Olympic Games. The exhibitions are in Dutch only, so that just made it impossible for me to enjoy this place.
Unless you really have to see every Olympic Stadium and/or can read Dutch, I don’t think it is worth making the trip there, which is really out-of-way from other attractions.
