“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)

“Prepare to spend the day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Nowhere can you find a better collection of the Dutch masters. Take the time to appreciate the detail in the Night Watch.

“Absolutely Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We were in Amsterdam in May when the Rijks had just reopened and the lines were just so long on several tries that we skipped the museum. We returned in July and were delighted to discover that the lines were gone and we were able to enter the museum using our museumkaart without any wait. The 'new" museum is absolutely gorgeous....even the art looks new and fresh. This museum is so large that our 4 hour visit just gave us a small taste of the massive collections. We look forward to visiting again in the future.

“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.
