Enjoyed great character and style of this gallery. Right from the beginning with the coat hanging game for visitors!! MB also introduced me to some of those lesser heard of artists surr. some of the grand masters like Monticelli (Van Gough) and Paulis (Rembrandt) alongside lots of young current creative ventures. Not to forget the great outdoor sculpture -like screw... More

We went there by tram, we wanted to have a long stroll inside the museum but we came near the closing time. The museum map is quite clear so dont need any recording guidance (hence the 2 hours time). we kinda ran through the modern collections and went through the permanent collections. The collections are quite wide but not as... More

The standard exhibition was ok but the temporary "The future of fashion is now" was inspiring and interesting.

I've been to most of the known Dutch museums: Rijksmuseum, Kroller-Müller, van Gogh, etc. I would rank this one at the same level. I'd visit this one even if it was just for Bosch's "Pedlar". The museum is overwhelingly Dutch and Flemish in content, but the Magrittes and Dalis are worth it by themselves. The works are nicely displayed in... More

The Boymans has been around for ages, but keeps reinventing itself. Housed in a beautiful, stylish building, there is a lot of exhibition space. From the baffling wardrobe to the staircases: everything is admirable. A number of famous works by Van Gogh and Rembrandt are paired with contemporary works and exhibits. Recommended!

Large art collection contain everything from old masters to modern classics. Also some nice furniture. The museum garden is also nice to visit in the summer. Easy to combine with the other museums at the same square.

It is a great museum and a great experience despite it is not widely known as for instance Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. There are works of artists across different ages and from different countries. Just as an indication, as far as I remember in random memory remembers, just naming some painters I remember: Degas, Picasso, Van Gogh, Picasso, Bosch,... More

World-class art, but still could be done in 4-5 hours, so not overwhelming. Not to be missed if you go to Rotterdam

if you like the Dutch school this is certainly a museum you Cannot miss. The building is very Nice. When you'te inside you can leave your coat (surprise). Atmosphere is Nice, so are the people . Good explanations in Dutch and English. Do not forget to visit the park next door afterwards.
