“Fantastic Gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Everything you could possibly want to keep you entertained for hours. Covering the full range of artistic styles, from medieval paintings by Hieronymus Bosch to modern realist sculpture, this really is a fantastic gallery.

“Perhaps the best museum in Rotterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Great stationary collection with all styles and decades pretty much covered. Some rare gems as well.
Must be visited during your Rotterdam culture day.

“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.
