Amsterdam is known for counter culture and has some world class art museums and galleries. This museum contains Modern Art. This museum has a great collection of modernist and contemporary art. The collection is of a great variety yet it is not overwhelming. The information for each piece is really well written and gives just enough information without being dry.... More

I did not just see modern art. They have rich collections, but their contemporary art is also intriguing. I instead spent much time on contemporary art coz I have seen most modern artists' artworks in other places as they travel around the globe.

If you're a lover of modern art then this is a great museum/gallery to visit. The space is bright and the information by each piece is well written. I enjoyed many pieces and the fact that I could take photographs and in a way interact with the work. Downstairs was a special exhibition with many well known modern artists including... More

Simply esthatic! If u love art u must go and see it. If u r an expert u do not need the mediaguide, it does not give u plenty of infos. I definetly fell in love. Both permanent collection and temporary expositions definetly worth the price! Best museum in amsterdam!

The collection holds almost 90.000 items and represents virtually every significant movement in art and design from the late 19th century up to the 21st century. Prominent artists include Cezanne, Van... More

The very good rating is because of the escalator between the lower level and the top floor. It is a great experience and we tried it several times. The museum in itself suffers the "special exhibition syndrome": Many contemporary art museums have a vast permanent collection and earns their reputation to that. However, there is a tendency that many of... More

Had not been to the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam in many years, not since the new addition was built. It is quite impressive. From the special exhibits of modern art to the arts and crafts it is well worth the time to visit.

I am NOT a modern art fan, and after my visit to the Stedelijk I will readily admit I am not a Marlene Dumas fan, but it is always educational to be exposed to things one doesn't necessarily understand or appreciate. If one happens to be a modern art fan, I am certain one will be excited -- I was... More

Visited on a wet Amsterdam day. Beautiful building with modern extension to pre existing brick building. Range of art from late 19th century to modern day. Exhibit of works of Marlene Dumas was inspiring.
