“Easy to navigate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I enjoyed my visit and found it reasonably easy to navigate around the rooms. A very good mix of artworks, from traditional to modern. It wasn't very busy during my visit which made it even better.

“Excellent place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

BVB has an excellent collection spanning more than half a millineum, but is not so large as to become overwhelming. I especially liked the early van Gogh's.

It has a really nice collection! It is a due going there if you are in Rotterdam. The building is also interesting to visit in itself

“One of my favorites!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

And I am a museum snob! Really nice mix of contemporary, the old guard, and everything in between...really sweet Bosch piece! Strong focus on design (what I call the Dutch national past time) both classic and more contemporary conceptual design. Great staff...I had been trying to find out why another museum was closed when they were supposed to be open, and the staff person called for me to find out (as my Dutch is non existent).

Really a must see, and one of my favorite museums ever! GO! Also, it's located in a cute artsy neighborhood with many yummy looking restaurants and bars!

“Recommend unreservedly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

There are superb paintings on display here, covering the ages from old up to 20th century moderns. Early on the multimedia guide gives a intriguing account of the story of Van Meegeren’s Fake Vermeers.

It was great to see such classics as Bosch’s The Pedlar and Brueghel’s Tower of Babel, amongst many others.

The Surrealism selection is outstanding. Dali is represented, as is Max Ernst with his marvellous Le Couple. The highlight for us was Rene Magritte with his imaginative Red Boot, Not to be Reproduced and the juxtaposition of unlikely objects on an isolated dirt track.

There are many more works from the last century including some by Kandinsky and Picasso.
