This was my first time visiting Rijksmuseum and it was amazing! The Rembrandt and Van Gogh exhibits were much more substantial than I expected. I was there for hours admiring all the wonderful art!

The museum was closed for renovations the last time I was in Amsterdam so this was on top of my to-do list and I was not disappointed. The buildings and gardens are so beautiful not to mention the extensive collection that is inside! It’s definitely a place where you need a few hours to see just the highlights. The museum app has a tour of the 20 most important works which is really great for an hour visit.

Buy tickets online and go straight in!

Fast cues when you buy tickets online, amazing experience, worth a visit. Consider to spend there at least 2.5 hours, good option to escape from the rain showers

Looked forward to visiting the renovated museum. First of all the good things.
The renovation of the building itself is excellent, the superb paintings have been arranged logically, the cafeteria is good and the restaurant looked to have an unusual menu.
Now the not so good. The free guide is not upto much and the gf layout map is very bad.
The signage is appalling, beautifully designed but incredibly small. The interpretation of the paintings is often simplistic to say the least. The lift doors and controls are painted white in a white lobby and needless to say with poor signage.
