This museum was my son's idea. We toured the museum, which takes about 30 minutes then they offer you to choose one free drink. Of course 21 and older only. Then a bartender instructed us on how to make cocktails. We had so much fun.

My daughter and I visited House of Bols last week and it was a great experience. The staff knew their cocktails, especially Adam, who had to put up with my banter throughout the whole Cocktail workshop experience. Well worth the money and would definately recommend the Cocktail

We visited the House of Bols on Sunday as a last minute plan on our trip to Amsterdam, due to the weather being awful! We happened to arrive at 1:40 and at 2pm there was a cocktail making class as well as the tour. We opted for this ticket as it seemed excellent value for 3
