“Great museum!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

You need to have, I think, 2-3hrs. for this museum.
There are so many famous painting, sculpture, historical things, and even the modern product or design of many artists.
There is restaurant available, toilet are free, and nice view also free of charge :D

“Bit boring”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The NAI is a bit boring. Just loads of architecture stuff nothing really special. But the nice thing is you can visit the Sonneveld house next to the museum for free. And that really is a treat.

“Surprisingly interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

In an attempt to find an interesting trip after quite a few days in the city, this seemed like an unlikely prospect, but actually had some very interesting interactive displays and exceptional photo opportunities.

The Sonneveld House (reviewed separately) was intriguing to visit and even the 10-year old with us was engrossed in the audio information.

Take a picnic and sit on a bench opposite the institute if the weather is fine.

“Great for architecture geeks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Inexpensive admission by Netherlands standards which includes Sonneveld House (worthwhile for that alone) Very thought provoking exhibit on the basic values of Dutch architecture (although a bit of an odd presentation, at least in my limited experience). Cafe is nice for a light lunch.

“A unique place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

There were two exhibitions on display - Treasury & Dutchville. The Treasury is a real treasure house for architects. The tour of habitations in the Netherlands is aesthetically displayed and the commentary with each exhibit is not only informative but also hilarious.
