A really lovely building and I suppose you should do it when you're at the Van Gough museum. That's it really.

Lots of information - very interesting. Try to go early in the morning as the crowds build up during the day. Lovely at night.

We were planning to get the Amsterdam City card until we realised this museum was not on it (except for the nominal €2.50 discount). We decided not to go for the card, and instead come here and then a few other selected attractions. We we're in agreement that we made the right choice as there is plenty to see here... More

Well worth the visit, and if you have kids make sure you get the special puzzle book and / or multimedia visit (mobile). It is a great museum made all the better following the renovation. You can easily spend hours exploring Dutch Golden Age with painters like Rembrandt, Hals and Vermeer and other contemporaries and it is only 10 mins... More

Could have spent a whole day here alone, a short stay (2 full days) prevented us from lingering longer. A very useful guide is available free of charge picked up in the foyer.

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
