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

Museum Boymans is one of the best musea in Holland. Don't miss it when you are in Rotterdam. We show you modern art as well as many very interresting international classical painters. Look in the internet to see the collection.

Beautifully and thoughtfully laid out, with a considered selection. Loved the Italian-style sculpture hall.

I really enjoyed the collections shown in the upper floors of the building. There are some Picasso, Monet and other paintings that are really worth a visit

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
