If you're planning to visit more than a few museums in the Netherlands, it pays to buy a Museumcard. It gives free entrance to over 400 museums throughout the country, including all major ones in Amsterdam.
For most museums tickets for adults range EUR 8,50 to 15,- .
A Museumcard costs about 60 Euros (under 19 years ½ price), and is valid one year.

Plus, there's another great advantage : you can go to the same museum more than once. Especially convenient for the large museums, for coming back a second time with more focus.
And don't forget that multitude of charming small museums you're bound to stumble upon when visiting. With a Museumcard you'll sooner hop in, and have a look. That's just how it works.
So in all respects, a Museumcard helps you being flexible with your visit to the Netherlands. And with Dutch climate in mind, that too is something to keep in mind. See page When to visit what.

A Museumcard can be bought in museums (not in the very small ones). After you filled in a form, and paid, you can use the card immediately.
On the Museumcard website (in Dutch only), there's a museum list. You can order a Museumcard online. However, as far as I know they don't send it abroad.
