The Muiderslot Castle was originally built by one Count Floris V in 1280. When the Count was murdered by rebellious noblemen, the Bishop of Utrecht stormed the ramparts, gleefully reducing it to rubble. A new castle duly appeared on the same site in 1370, becoming Holland's most popular (certainly in terms of visitors). A restoration in the late 1800s preserved its wonderful turrets, and the castle now houses a celebrated state museum.

Can you go inside?

I am wondering if you can go inside and if you can what is the admission fee?

You can go inside - it's a museum with lots of the original features nicely preserved. The fee was €8.00 - not sure if it still is.
