Apart from famous Peter Brueghel the Elder's The Tower of Babel painting, you can enjoy other impressive works from Salvador Dali, Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Mondrian, etc. The contemporary art is quite interesting too. Overall, a great place for art enthusiast.

The museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is located ten minutes from the city centre and is open on all days. Its collection is pretty impressive, from classical to modern art: Dali, Magritte, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Matisse, Mondrian, Klee, Kokoschka, Kandinsky… you can easily spend half a day there. One of the pieces deserving attention is the Tower of Babel by Pieter... More

Nice section of Magritte and Dali was icing on the cake. Large visual arts section too which was cutting edge. Eclectic mix that's well curated.

I am that much into art, but Rijksmuseum with out audio , Rembrant Museum with free audio and Mauritshuis Den Haag with free iPad audio were much better adding allot to each painting/room, covered most if not all painting and in English. I decided not to go to the Kroller-Muller which was also described as one of best in Europe... More

I liked everything, including the coat hangers and the friendly staff. I was so good to see some pieces from Monet and Picasso, but to get the opportunity to experience modern art, as well.

We only took in the exhibition of Art through the centuries: great paintings although some choices were sort of: really? Another one of his??? But great stuff, especially as I had someone with me not really educated in the arts so it sort of worked for her. But why, oh why, is it so difficult to make a little sign... More

A lot of options of paintins and sculptures from rainescence until nowadays. Well organised with a free app that guide you through the pieces (take your tablet or smartphone and your headphone and you just pay for the tickets).

The museum has a *very* broad collection, including works by Dali, Degas, Magritte, Mondrian, Monet, Picasso, Rodin, many others. And yet it's an accessible size, and not crowded at all when I visited mid-week.

The best thing about the Boijmans for me is the exhibition they have. Ranging from contemporary art to fashion or guest curators that use all from the extensive collection. The old part of the museum is a maze of smaller rooms with small treasures.
