“A great art gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

This is one of the besr art galleries in the world. From medieval to modern. Itt obviously has a great dutch collection from the golden age, but Rotterdam were less restricted than other dutch cities in collecting art from around the world. Hihlishgs are the Bosch & Bruegels and the Rembrandt boy at desk. Impressionists, expressionists & surrealists are all well represented.

“Masters and More”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

While not a truly great museum, the Boijmans is well worth the price of admission and the few hours it takes to see its main collection. As expected, its top focus is the Dutch Masters, but it has a surprisingly good collection of French Impressionists (including three Monets) and a small but high quality surrealist collection, highlighted by a few superb Dali paintings. Returning to the Masters, among the major figures the focus is on representation; the secondary painters appear in far greater numbers. Probably the most famous work is Breugel the Elder's "Tower of Babel". I was disappointed in the Bosch works, but that's a minor complaint. On a weekday, the museum was remarkably uncrowded, allowing for a more intimate experience as well. Definitely something any Rotterdam visitor should take in.
