We visited this gallery on a soggy rainy day and it was the perfect place to be. It's in a huge building and has a really interesting mix from old masters to contemporary art and design. There is great information about all the art on show, and the painting descriptions (in English and Dutch) are really helpful. Its worth a... More

You can see the entire museum without feeling overwhelmed (unlike the Rijksmuseum). Every period of Dutch painting is represented, and the curator's comments are extraordinarily interesting, including remarking on painters who trimmed their sails for commercial reasons.

Rotterdam takes second place to Amsterdam, maybe third after Den Haag, but it should be a must-stop on anyone's itinerary ... and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is one good reason for that. What a wonderful collection, encompassing much of the history of art from the early Renaissance to the present - all housed in a splendid building by Van... More

The museum Boijmans is located near the center. It has a great selection of paintings from the Dutch golden ages until now. I really like the Dali paintings and sculptures. The museum als has a collection of industrial design - with works from Jacobssen, Eames, Rams and the likes. Outside the building is a park with sculptures, go for a... More
