I took my art loving family to the MBVB and we all loved it. We spent an entire afternoon there because there were no lines, and we could take our time, often being the only ones in a room filled with the masters. The MBVB has a bit of everything, from Picasso and Dali to Van Gogh and Rembrandt. You... More

A not-that-very-well-known place, at least for me, this museum contains many Dutch and international master paintings, including Van Gogh, Dalí and Rembrandt. Totally worth it!

Went to Boijmans Van Beuningen myself on a quiet weekday afternoon. I would think is a hidden gems for Rotterdam, quite like it myself, they have quite a huge collections for paintings. One thing i will suggest is the lighting for the museum needs to be improve. I like the fact they have plenty windows with natural lights, but maybe... More

This museum is not big but it has a very nice art collection including Rembrandt, Monet, Picasso, Dali, Magritte, etc. and it is not overwhelming like other museums, you can look the entire collection in one afternoon. At least during weekdays it isn't crowded so it is easy to enjoy. Also the surroundings (Museum Park) is highly recommendable. Worth the... More

Pieter Breugel's Tower of Babel is probably the highlight, but there is so much more: classic, modern, quirky, experimental. All curated with a refreshingly relaxed take on art history. Free WiFi in all the galleries, with additional information on a selection of artworks available at tour.boijmans.nl. Don't miss the ground floor cloak room and Room 19.

A vast space to rove around - on the one hand petite galleries full of beautiful paintings from various European schools. Then one moves as if through a 'Stargate' into the 21st Century with confrontational contemporary work. Hugely stimulating and rewarding.

Besides the regular exhibitions of all kind of modern art, museum Boijmans displays very interesting classic painting starting from the middle-aged (such as Breughel the tower of Bable), the great Dutch painters like Rembrandt all the way to contemporary masters like Dali.

Nice museum with a broad collection of arts. Diversity and small theme expositions. Situated in the centre of Rotterdam. Easy to combine with a visit to the Euromast
