This is one of the best art museums I've visited. It has a significant collection of "classics" with some fun surprises around a corner or two to keep you on your toes. Great intermingling of classic and contemporary in thoughtful ways. Loved it!

Amsterdam is famous for its variety of art museums. Rotterdam only has one large one, but one that can stand comparison with any of the better-known Amsterdam museums. The museum has a fixed collection and a wing with temporary exhibitions. The fixed collections consist of three parts: - mediaeval to early 20th century paintings - applied arts & designs -... More

Quite expensive (17 euros). Nice arrangement, quite a few famous paintings/painters there. There are also stuff that have not much to do with art. Plan 3 hours.

Despite having lived in Rotterdam (30 years ago.....) I was not that familiar with Boijmans Van Beuningen. Clearly an omission. This is a museum with a rich collection and a fascinating history. Even the building (even though not very old) has a great feel to it. Do read the various other reviews as to all the artists (including some famous... More

The museum is literally filled up with goodness. It has many paintings by world-famous artists (van Gogh, Monet, Magritte, Mondrian, Rembrandt, Tiepolo, Tiziano, just to name a few), a lot of different pieces from many epochs and also interesting temporary exhibitions. I went there mainly to see the Design Derby and I happily paid those 2 extra euros (normally museums... More

Really enjoyed this place. Great work on display. Lots to see. Fantastic for anyone interested in contemporary art. I recommend the Pipilotti Rist install. Boijmans is equally as interesting if you are into design - there is a huge amount of great design work on display. There is also a section with some wonderful modernist artwork, including Magritte, and Dali.... More

A fascinating range of paintings across a wide range of years and artists. The best bits are the captions alongside the works - not only amazingly informative but also funny and sarcastic on occasions and written in clear language. Lots of other galleries should take note.

Had a very nice afternoon in this museum. Building is old with lots of wood, nooks to sit in to take in the art and the collection impressive and broad. Really enjoyed the design exhibit Netherlands vs. Belgium too! Restaurant has lovely outdoor sweating in the park and great cake.
