I come here about once every two years, usually for a temporary exhibit, and each time I explaore another corner of the permanent collection. Don't miss the molded toilet!

I was attracted by the Picasso sculpture outside the museum and also the "cage" in which children could play soccer - it was built like a work of art itself. Inside is a coat check which is also a work of art. Hangers hang from circular rods in the ceiling and can be used to check coats which are securely... More

Might not attract the same amount of tourists as the museums in The Hague or Amsterdam, but that only works in its advantage. Enjoy a quiet afternoon at Boijmans van Beuningen and be amazed by the variety of art works. The museum offers modern classics as well as Rembrandt, van Gogh and Rubens. You will not be dissapointed

We very much enjoyed the insightful temporary exhibition "Focus Beijing" which still runs till 21st of September. In order not to get lost, simply follow the room numbers which are clearly indicated at the doorways. Lot's additional information is written on the walls enchancing the quality of the visit.

Not a big museum, but has a variety of art from the Dutch masters (a small selection), impressionism, and plenty of modern art, including some furniture. If this is your only chance to visit a Dutch art museum, then this museum is quite adequate for a quick overview, but this museum probably can't be compared to the Rijks or other... More

This museum switches its entire exhibition every half year I believe. There's always a new theme, so don't expect anything when you visit. It's very possible that the current theme doesn't really appeal to you. All in all it's a beautiful museum. Nice building. Friendly staff. Good place to eat (indoors and outside).

A brilliantly curated art gallery & museum. A huge variety of artwork from the Old Masters through to exciting contemporary artists. The galleries exhibiting ceramics, furniture & household items were a joy. The cafe & outside space gets top marks too. Don't miss this treasure!
