Allard Pierson Museum Amsterdam

Follow the tracks of the old Egyptians, Greek and Romans in the Allard Pierson Museum located right in the heart of the Amsterdam city center. Run by the University of Amsterdam and housed in a grandiose former bank on the southern fringes of the Red Light District, the Allard Pierson is the city’s leading archaeological museum which is named after the first classical archaeology professor at the university.

Hence, the top archaeological collection was established in collaboration with talented students, expert researchers, and cooperating institutions. Ancient civilizations are revived and artifacts dating from 4000 B.C. to 1000 A.D. will reveal the ways of the old. Including Persian, Etruscan and Cypriot pottery, jewelry and glassware, mummies, statuary and everyday household objects unearthed from tombs. The significance of these ancient cultural symbols are explored, as are the ways in which they challenge and shape contemporary European culture.

A roster of temporary exhibitions provides further insights into civilizations around the shore of the Mediterranean during ancient times. History is brought to life through interactive segments that allow you to unearth your inner archaeologist. Currently the museum is rebuilding its collection, but remains open to the public.
