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

visiting this museum is like riding a time capsule but in art style. so, they have a clear concept, you will be lead back from 15th century to millennium with many contemporar paintings.

Went with a friend. This is a well laid out gallery with some beautiful paintings to see. Knowledgable staff on hand to help. Early art through to modern a good all round gallery with lots of Dutch art which is what I wanted. My friend who is Dutch hadn't been for years and she really enjoyed it too. Good for... More

The permanent collection with Picasso, Monet, Pieter Breughel, Hieronymus Bosch is a must see. The temporary exhibition is sometimes a nice bonus. The freshly baked sandwiches and fresh made soups are a nice intermezzo

You can see contemporary design fashion art and so on mixed with old dutch art, Also a permanent exposition of Salvador Dali's works. I dislike the atmosphere of the building a bit so one star less but definitely worth to see it.

The museum is very interesting and we enjoyed the special Exhibition enormously! Use the booklet and collect the cards and choose the designs you like best.

Admission was a steep 17 Euros but with the coupon book with the Rotterdam welcome card, you could get a 25% discount. The museum layout was good, and there were English descriptions. The collection was well represented but but the paintings were not that impressive. Visit only if you are in a Rotterdam for a few days or on a... More

Being Rotterdam this place is cooler than the average museum / gallery. With artworks from medieval through to contemporary pieces, including: Bosch, Bruegel, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Monet & Dali. Currently on is the design derby, a collection of classic designs pieces in a competition between Holland & Belgium, whereby you vote for your favorite.

This tries very hard to be a comprehensive collection of everything, but the Flemish art is unique and quite stunning, even if the lighting is a little strange. At 17.5 euros for entrance (no concessions) it is rather more expensive than other local museums. The catalogue of the collections provides only thumbnail reproductions of some major art.

When living close to Rotterdam (and when art and museums are your 'thing') you should definitely visit Boymans at least once a year. The permanent collection is impressive (paintings, modern art, sculptures) and never bores you. Some nice works of Dali can be found in the permanent collection as well. The non-permanent exhibitions vary, but can also be very interesting... More
