Despite being easy to miss it is world renown as the archaeological museum for the University of Amsterdam and hosts some of the most exciting Egyptian and ancient Greek exhibits in Europe.

The museum also has several scale models of ancient temples and buildings Physically part of the University of Amsterdam complex, the Allard Pierson Museum has exhibits spanning over 3,500 years including a world-class Egyptian exhibit with a room dedicated to mummies, sarcophagi and death, featuring a film showing the process of mummification.
