“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

This has many one of a kind notable works. The crowds can be a bit much so buy your tickets on line (they don't have a particular time slot) and go on an off day. The audio guide is useful but they also have handouts near major works which are worth reading.

“World Class Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Great collection and a nice place for lunch!

You must check your back pack or pocketbook. They are very efficient at doing this.

“Excellent Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

I'm very lucky, I can visit this museum after under renovation for years. What I like on this museum is the Rembrants collections especially The Night Watch. Easy to reach and not far from Amsterdam Central. You can take photos inside.

“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

As with most museums we lost track of time. The sun was up when we went in, but down when we came out. There are some interesting pieces inside. The rooms are time period themes, so if you are short on time, locate the rooms with styles you want to ensure you see first. There is an I Amsterdam sign behind the museum. It's a great place to take pictures.

“Lots to See; Not Enough Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

This museum has a lot to see. Wide variety of artefacts through the ages. It is a lot to take in!

What I liked most were the art pieces. Good selection of art by the Dutch masters.

The cafe was a little disappointing as the food selection is very limited. As one needs a whole day to be able to see everything in the Museum, we would need to eat in the Cafe. Only cold food available and limited variety.

Great gift shop.
