“Superb Art Gallery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This Gallery, ideally situated close to the metro has one of the finest art collections in the world. Unlike some Dutch galleries the Boijmans collected international art rather than just Dutch and Flemish, although the Dutch masters are well represented. This gallery covers everything from medieval religious paintings right up to modern abstract art. The highlights are the Bosch panels, -these are not in great condition, but are still spellbinding, and the Breugel -Tower of Babel. The gallery has more paintings than wall space, but still looks to make new acquisitions, and there is also usually an exhibition of contemporary art.

Great collection of art and design. Also temporary exhibitions.
Check the museum website. They describe it better than I can. Worth a visit!

“View of Rotterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The museum gives an excellent view of different types of art and the special exhibitions are generally very interesting. Not a place to visit with young children.

“a museaum for all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

it will change its displays every few months, which means you will at some time get to see your chosen artist. We went to see the Salvador Dali expo which was very impressive, there is a shop so you are always able to buy a copy of your chosen picture. Try going during the week outside school holidays otherwise it can be very busy.
