Trying to rope in Keukenhof. Seems like there's lockers there, but I have no idea if they will fit our carry-ons, anyone know?

Going to ditch the Flower Market and going to have to pick between the Maritime museum, old city segway tour, or Jewish museum.

Day 1:
Arrive AMS 5:55am
Keukenhof (Approx 8am-10am)
Pizza & Co (Approx 11am)
Van Gogh Museum (Approx 12:30pm)
Rijksmuseum (Approx 3pm)
Heineken Experience (Approx 5:15-6:30pm)
Dinner: HaBaron (Approx 7pm)

Day 2:
Anne Frank House (9:25am-11am)
Royal Palace (Approx 11:30am)
Lunch: Machane Yehuda (Approx 1pm)
Portuguese Synagogue (Approx 2:30pm)
Maritime museum or old city segway tour or Jewish museum? (Approx 4pm)
Dinner: HaBaron (Approx 6:30pm)
Canal Ride (Approx 9pm)

Day 3:
Depart AMS 9:20am
You can skip the Jewish Museum or do it quickly, we did it in less then 30 min.

From machane yehuda you can prob stop off at a flower market on the way to Portuguese shul.

If you can pull it off prob do the canal tour before habaron. The service there can be a little slow.

I was booked as a GOH and neither the Andaz nor the Regency gave kosher breakfast. We nibbled on fruit, oatmeal we brought, and coffee along with some pastries we picked up.

I can't seem to find the other pictures or info now, but this was breakfast.
They had offered me to choose what I wanted to eat but I didn't choose anything so this was the default.

Awesome. Regular menu with pizza?
Not American, but hot and decent.

Fries were nice with mayo, falafel was pretty weak. Was open early not sure how late they stay open, hbaron is the place to go anyway, fantastic apps. Smoked ribeye carpaccio was some of the best Ive had. Soup and LAmb stew was also great

Too bad u just missed sal meyer.

I'll be in Amsterdam later this week for a day, any recommendations for activities that are young kid friendly?
