“Amazing Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

The Night Watch is reason enough - but it only scratches the tip. Amazing pieces from prominent Dutch artists, a wonderful doll house exhibit, an old library, tall ship replica, the list goes on. Truly a stand out museum experience and in Europe that is saying something.

“BIG. Worth Your Time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This museum was recently renovated and re-opened not long ago. They did a fantastic job! The art is tremendous, the historical exhibits illuminating. You could easily spend a whole day here..or more. This is the national museum, so this is the best of the best. I'd put this right up there with the canal tours as something you MUST do when in Amsterdam. If you are going to do one "cultural" museum kind of thing in Amsterdam, this is the one.

“great place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

The only problem ith this visit is that the museum closes at 5 pm, quite early, so make sure you get there early.
The second floor is by far the best one

“Incredible art in a beautiful building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

There's a lot of amazing art to see, and the building itself is impressive. Worth a visit - just avoid Saturdays if you can.

“Great to see some of the master”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

This place was pretty cool and worth the entry fee. Got to see many of the Dutch masters works. It's a clean and pretty standard museum of art, but larger than most.
