Architecture, ground floor planing, flow of movement and the philosophy behind exhibition design all bring unexpected delight! I have visited Louvre, O'say, Metropolitan, Padua, Hermitage and Rijks before I came. The experience of this museum is no less satisfying at all. It has a very clear purpose: to communicate with the ordinary audience, not just the cultural elites. When I... More

So many treasure that I have to visit it twice in a month. Truely a must visit in Rotterdam! And do not forget to have a lunch or tea break in the attached restaurant where you would also enjoy a magnificent garden view.

On the day of our visit it was very quiet, we got to enjoy paintings by Bruegel The Elder, Rembrandt, Monet, Van Gogh, Magritte and Dali to name but a few with relatively no one... More

Good representation of the Flemish and Dutch Masters from 1400 to the present. They actually had better quality Magritte paintings than did the Magritte Museum in Brussels. The primary reason to go to Rotterdam.

This museum is small but contains a magnificent selection of works. It is laid out beautifully. It does not take long to see and is worth the few hours.

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.
