Should I get the I amsterdam card? - Reviews & Calculation


Well, we asked ourselves the same question before we visit Amsterdam. The first instinct is why not right? Everything seems to be included in the pass and it should be a no brainer to get the card. There are so many things to do in Amsterdam. 

However, we asked ourselves again the same question after looking at the tag that comes along 1,2,3 & 4 days for 59, 74, 87 and 98 respectively. Since we will be in Amsterdam for 4 days 3 nights should we be getting the 84 pass?

So, What’s included in the pass?
  • 40 museum in the city + 11 museum outside the city
  • Transportation within the city - (GVB: bus, tram, metro, ferry)
  • Free Canal Cruise
  • Up to 25% Discount at selected attraction & restaurant
& What’s not included in the pass?
  • Anne Frank Museum
  • Heineken Experience
  • Transportation to Airport
  • Train Rides in Amsterdam   
Break down of sample itinerary items

In summary, I Amsterdam pass is worth the money if you are planning to visit at least 3 museums/gallery a day and interested to take the canal ride. Also, it is worth noting that some museums operates from 0900 - 1900. Queuing up to enter takes time and up 1- 2 hr.

If you are not a museum goer like us, you will be better off with transportation pass, individual museum tickets and most importantly – Flexibility to do whatever you want and not restricted by the “Pass”.  

Hope it helps!
