The Museumplein (Dutch pronunciation: [myˌzeːʏmˈplɛin]; English: Museum Square) is a public space in the borough Amsterdam South in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Located at the Museumplein are three major museums - the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, and Stedelijk Museum - and the concert hall Concertgebouw.
The area was the location of the International Colonial and Export Exhibition in 1883.
The Museumplein was reconstructed after a design by the Swedish/Danish landscape architect Sven-Ingvar Andersson in 1999. It now includes underground parking spaces and an underground supermarket. In the winter, the pond can be transformed into an artificial ice skating area.
