Perfect for a half day

Such a well organised museum! We had got the audio guide downloaded on the phone, the museum had wi-fi connection and we faced no problem connecting the audio guide to wi-fi.

Forget almost all the pictures you see here. These are taken at the real Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, which is of course a good reason to visit Amsterdam. At Schiphol airport between pier E and F you can see a selection of about 10 masterpieces from the Rijksmuseum. It is clear you cannot expect the highlights, but still it is very... More

This amazing museum is almost like a gate at the old end of the city as you pass through you go into a beautiful park and diamond district. If you have a change to take it all in in one day you will not be let down. Purchase tickets ahead of time that will save you the line. There are... More

It is small, but an oasis on the airport. Nice to stand still by, even if it is only shortly. Or to dream away if you have extra time before departure and are fed up with shopping.

Fairly easy to navigate. Plenty of seating at baggage claim while waiting for luggage. Take escalators downstairs to catch trains - tickets sold at machines. Thorough security screening (all cords, electric or battery-operated items must be removed from carry on luggage and placed on conveyer belt for screening - different than TSA requirements in US). Really nice Delta executive club!

It's free. You've got the time to drink in culture at its richest. Like low hanging fruit, you have to go for it.

Brilliant, walking from one (busy) world, into a (heavenly) other. This is such a great option for somebody with a stopover in Amsterdam. Highly recommended.

This is very unique and a great addition to Schiphol. See very famous artists or portraits here, and they change the selection. Peaceful restful and quiet, this small room reminds you of Dutch culture and history. Very thoughtful to place it in Amsterdam Schiphol, and a great pinnacle of Dutch design and the best airports voted by traveller in Europe... More

Had heard of the Rijkmuseum so just had to visit. A bit rushed so needs more time. Will visit again on next trip and allow more time in Amsterdam
