The tropenmuseum is located in one of the finest buildings in Amsterdam. As you will see when you are inside the museum, it consists of an impressive hal with a glass dome at a height 22 meters. This light-hall is surrounded by galleries arranged in three layers. Here, about ten exhibitions offer a many-sided picture of human life in the tropics and subtropics.
