Van Gogh, Rebrandt etc Tons to see at the Rijksmuseum. We didn't buy tickets in advance and had no problems getting in (no line at 3:30 in the afternoon and enough time for us to see what we wanted to before the 5 pm close)....More

I wish I was, but sadly I'm not. That said I really enjoyed my visit to van Gogh museum, and emerged thinking that perhaps I'm not a total philistine! Setting is amazing, facilities and staff excellent. Vincent's life story as much as his work are...More

Spent a couple hours inside the museum. Could have spent several more hours. We were able to see some of the most famous, expensive and beautiful painting in the world. Would definitely recommend it to everyone.

If this is the only museum you see, then it should be the Rijksmuseum, van Gogh painting is exceptional, layout of museum not that friendly to navigate.

It's a large national art museum. Get some culture in your life and go here. Best to be waiting in line at opening time than wait even an hour or two as it does get crowded. IMHO especially interesting is the colonial art and artifacts...More

This museum is grand and unique in that cyclists can ride through it. I thought I’d go see the Rembrandt and Vermeer paintings and be on my way. I wound up spending the whole afternoon there and then went to the gardens. First, download the...More

Art? Antiques? Jewelery? ship moels? Garments? Artifacts? All here. Something for everyone. That said, it’s a massive building and you gotta take this in bites, if you have the time. It’s overload to try to “do it all on one day”, so grab a map,...More

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
