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

Very interesting collection with some of the big names in a building with beautiful suroundings. Van Gogh, Dali, Picasso, Monet to name a few.

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!

This is an absolutely excellent art gallery. My friend introduced me to this delight. It has something for everyone. A truly eclectic collection. Everything from Bosch, Rubens, Rembrandt, through Monet, Degas, Seurat, Dali and Kandinsky to exhibitions by current artists. Also a small collection of beautiful triptychs and diptychs (religious). A superb and, occasionally, quirky layout. The restaurant looked clean... More

Some very nice paintings especially impressionist but other Dutch as well. See it, but don't expect it to be in the same league as other major museums.

Gem of a museum. Spent ~2 hours here and still haven't seen everything I'd like to have. Will be returning if I ever find myself in the area again. Didn't use the audio tour, but I found that the explanations on the signs were enough.This is a must-do for anyone with a remote inclination towards art and art history (even... More

If you find yourself in Rotterdam and are an art lover, take time to visit Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. The permanent collection is well displayed.....many Dutch artists. Since I am a fan of the artist Piet Mondrian, I so enjoyed seeing several of his paintings...a little hint for another day, plan a vist to the museums in The Hague. If... More

This is a very nice museum and may be enjoyed also by those who normally are not into museums. Has excellent info and explanations in English and some true gems. Not very big. Just enough to enjoy without reaching exhaustion one often experiences in huge and overcrowded museums.
