We visited as part of a day in the Museum area. It was worth a quick visit, but had little that was really special or interesting. The displays are quite difficult to follow as the information is poorly placed. worth a trip but I probably would not go back....unlike van Gogh and Rijks.

I found the permanent modern art collection and the temporary exhibitions equally rewarding and I enjoyed the upstairs café. Modern art, paintings, sculptures and objects from Art Deco to the 60ies and beyond.

We were lucky to be in Amsterdam during the "The Oasis of Matisse" special exhibition held in May 2015. The museum has a modern addition that the locals call 'kitchen sink', it resembling the shape of a sink from outside. though once you are inside, you get a feeling of spacious expanse.

It's modern art so you'll either like it or you wont. I liked it, there was plenty of variety in styles even with a large part being reserved for one artist (Isa Genzen). Price is not cheap but not too expensive. Plenty to see, takes a couple of hours to get round.

The Stedelijk is a pretty average contemporary art museum for Europe. It seems the spectacularness of the Rijk's and the Van Gogh make the Stedelijk suffer in comparison. The architecture is an uncomfortable meshing of a classical building with a contemporary addition. Not very well done. The art is also mediocre, mostly second rate works of well known internationally known... More

The collection is not extensive. For art lovers familiar with MoMA, the Pompidou Center, or the Tate Modern, it may be a little disappointing. Still, it has some very nice galleries.

One of the reasons for going to Amsterdam and not disappointed. The art was stunning and in some cases thought provoking. You may not like it all but you have to see it to appreciate what the human mind can produce. Recommended.

I'll start with the pros by stating that Stedelijk Museum had some excellent paintings and sculptures by Picasso and paintings by Van Gogh. However, most of the ''modern'' art exhibitions didn't cease to amaze me. They way they were exhibited was not ideal for sure. Full of dust and seemed that they were just randomly placed in some corner. For... More

We thought the collections in this museum were odd, with about two thirds of it turned over to three feature artists and the remainder containing a fairly thin permanent collection. There's a design section which is pretty similar to design collections I've seen in other places, and not terribly interesting, and then two sections of modern art up to the... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
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 destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
