The Museumplein (English: Museum Square) is a square located in the centre of Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The square is called "Museum Square" because there are several museums located around the square, for example the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum, and the Diamond Museum. The Museum Square is also used for (mass) events such as festivals, celebrations, and demonstrations and was the location of an international and colonial exhibition in 1883. Armin Van Buuren honoured The Dutch Team at Museumplein 2010 by playing Swedish House Mafia.

The square was reconstructed in 1999. The design of the new Museumplein is by the Swedish / Danish landscape architect Sven-Ingvar Andersson. It includes underground parking spaces and an underground supermarket. In the winter, the pond can be transformed into an artificial ice skating area.
