If only to see the extraordinary Rembrandt's Night Watch with your own eyes, it is well worth going. But even though only a small part of the museum is open due to renovation, the most important art pieces are exposed.

Good value, lots of exhibits - mostly paintings though. As the national museum, it's a worthwhile visit.

Although most of the museum is closed off you can still see many great works and it allows you to see the highlights quickly. If you do go I highly recommend the audio tour. It really will completely change and enhance your experience. The informal English version made you feel as though you were being taken on a private journey... More

If you like Rembrandt this place is for you. The famous "Night Watch" is amazing. Early Netherlandish paintings - delicious!

Loved seeing old artifacts, art, silver, etc... Just wish it was a little bigger. The building is huge, but the exhibit only takes up about 25% of it.
