We come here on study trips with my course, and students have free entry which is really handy. The temporary Rembrandt exhibition was superb, and the museum collection is impressively varied! Great to visit!

Lots of history and educational but pricey at nearly £10 per adult plus extra to visit the dungeons. Not sure about family tickets we were not offered them.
