“Terrific museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

It seems Rotterdam is populated by nice and friendly English-speakers. Everyone we approached -- from the train station to the museum -- were well-natured and helpful. Stopping by a firetruck to ask for directions resulted in the entire team of firemen explaining how to get there :))
The museum beats all expectations. It's not as famous as those of Amsterdam and Hague, as a matter of fact, it's mentioned in Rick Steve's as a non-event, but for a regional museum it's just excellent. Rembrandt, Rubens, Hals, Breugel, Bosch, Van Gogh, Monet, Pissarro, Munch, Magritte, and sculptures by Dali this is just a partial list of their collection. And their roped checkroom is very innovative too. Besides it's a pleasant 15-minute walk from the impressive, modern train station.

“Fantastic Gallery”

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.

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.
