Allard Pierson Museum is the archaeology museum of the University of Amsterdam. The ancient civilisations of ancient Egypt, the Near East, the Greek World, Etruria and the Roman Empire are revived in this museum. Art-objects and utensils, dating from 4000 B.C. till 1000 A.D. give a good impression of everyday-life.

The museum is displaying original antiquities and other objects as one of the sources of Western tradition to put the present in a culture-historical perspective by means of insight in and understanding of the past.

The Allard Pierson Museum is the Archaeology Museum of the University of Amsterdam. We show the significance of ancient civilizations to contemporary European culture in a challenging way. We do this for the widest possible interested public, on the basis of an archaeological top collection in collaboration with talented students, excellent researchers and fellow institutions.
