Allard Pierson Archeological Museum

The Allard Pierson houses the collections of the former Allard Pierson Museum and the Special Collections of the University of Amsterdam.

The museum was rebranded as the Allard Pierson in 2019. Named after Mr. Allard Pierson (1831-1896), the first professor of Classical Archaeology at the University of Amsterdam, it opened its doors in 1934 at the Sarphati­straat. Its current location (since 1976) is the former head­quarters of the Nederlandse Bank (Dutch National Bank) on Oude Turf­markt 127.
