In the Allard Pierson you discover the heritage collections of the University of Amsterdam. The permanent presentation, ‘From the Nile to the Amstel’, invites visitors on a journey through 10,000 years of cultural history. The presentation starts in ancient Egypt and, once renovations are completed, ends in present-day Amsterdam. In July 2019 the most recent addition ‘Amsterdam, Creative City 1600 – 1900’ opened to the public. In addition, two major temporary exhibitions are held each year. In a new interactive space, Allard Pierson Live, visitors can engage with the heritage collections and look at restoration work up close.

(Review in Dutch)

Wie in de klassieke oudheid en archeologie is geïnteresseerd mag dit museum niet missen. Het leukst vind ik de de ArcheoHotspot. Dit is een ruimte waar (amateur-)archeologen bezig zijn om archeologisch vondsten nader te onderzoeken. Je kan de aanwezige archeologen vragen stellen en de originele vondsten beetpakken. Geschiedenis wordt zo voelbaar. Verder is er in het museum een uitgebreide collectie Romeinse, Griekse en Egyptische voorwerpen. Bij de laatste spreken mij de alledaagse gebruiksvoorwerpen aan zoals 3000 jaar oud toiletgerei of een fraaie vishaak die er tegenwoordig nog hetzelfde uitziet. Qua kunstvoorwerpen zijn de levensechte Fayum portretten het mooist. Je ziet een echt gezicht van ruim 2000 jaar geleden. In het aangrenzende gebouw van Bijzondere Collecties, binnendoor bereikbaar, is het café met lekkere koffie en taart.
