“Interesting Information”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

This place has good exhibition of art for a very busy place. It has also free WiFi for the first 30 minutes and many desks with plug in slots (so you can charge your drained batteries)

“Instead of the Rijksmuseum in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

If you do not have time to visit the Rijksmuseum in town, this is a perfect alternative. Lot smaller, that is true, but with beautiful art.

“Small, but carefully arranged art exhibit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

With a only few hours between flights and not able to travel downtown to the Rijksmuseum we dropping into the airport location. Of course it is not anything resembling the full size museum but to have a quiet, comfortable space at an airport to look at the twenty pieces of original classic paintings is refreshing. The pieces change regularly and have a theme: travel, business, and history of Dutch art. The Rijksmuseum gift store and 'museum' are located between areas E and F. The art is exhibited in a small room above the gift store, stairs are involved but there is an elevator. It is free and is open from 7am to 8pm. Worth a visit if you have limited time.

“It has disappeared!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

I was looking forward to my usual visit to this super little art museum right in the airport but it had gone from its location by the Rijksmuseum Shop and a kids play area was there instead.

I assume it has closed as the main Museum in the city proper is open again? A pity as a little bit of culture in an airport is a breath of much needed fresh air.

“Very poor substitute of the real Rijksmuseum”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

The Rijksmuseum at Schiphol airport is really a poor replacement of the real Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

If you have the time between your flights, book a trip into Amsterdam and see the real Rijksmuseum!
Or better, get up a couple of ours earlier, leave your luggage at the airport and explore Amsterdam city!
Night of day, this city never sleeps.
