For children

There is plenty to do at Amsterdam Castle Muiderslot! See for yourself.

Children’s quest

For children it is extra fun to discover the castle by doing things themselves. Go on a journey of discovery through the castle and gardens and complete the tasks. You determine the order of the route yourself. And of course… you will receive a nice reward afterwards.

  • Children’s quest ‘Discover and explore’
  • Suitable for children from 6 to 11 years and their adult supervisor(s).
  • Available at the ticket office and in the museum shop for 2 euros (including knight’s medal)


Visit the falconer in his tent on the Bastion and watch the magnificent birds of prey from up close. Read more about the falconer.

Family activities
