This is an absolutely excellent art gallery. My friend introduced me to this delight. It has something for everyone. A truly eclectic collection. Everything from Bosch, Rubens, Rembrandt, through Monet, Degas, Seurat, Dali and Kandinsky to exhibitions by current artists. Also a small collection of beautiful triptychs and diptychs (religious). A superb and, occasionally, quirky layout. The restaurant looked clean... More

Some very nice paintings especially impressionist but other Dutch as well. See it, but don't expect it to be in the same league as other major museums.

Gem of a museum. Spent ~2 hours here and still haven't seen everything I'd like to have. Will be returning if I ever find myself in the area again. Didn't use the audio tour, but I found that the explanations on the signs were enough.This is a must-do for anyone with a remote inclination towards art and art history (even... More

If you find yourself in Rotterdam and are an art lover, take time to visit Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. The permanent collection is well displayed.....many Dutch artists. Since I am a fan of the artist Piet Mondrian, I so enjoyed seeing several of his paintings...a little hint for another day, plan a vist to the museums in The Hague. If... More

This is a very nice museum and may be enjoyed also by those who normally are not into museums. Has excellent info and explanations in English and some true gems. Not very big. Just enough to enjoy without reaching exhaustion one often experiences in huge and overcrowded museums.

Didn't have a lot of knowledge about this place though heard it was worth a visit. It is indeed a gem. The scale of the gallery allows you to get an intimate gallery experience of the major painters of Europe without the crowds. Well laid out and nicely described.

This museum has a nice variety of work by several of the world's great artists. Be sure to get a map of the layout as the several rooms all adjoin one another and it can be easy to keep wandering back into the same room. However, the room are all numbered and the prized art is noted for each room.... More

This week i visited the museum during one of my breaks... I'm someone, who loves to watch paintings, however I don't stay looking at one for ages, I just want to get an impression, form my opinion that's it. Going through the normal collection of the museum, which covers about half of the building, it took me about an hour... More
