It’s a must visit museum if only to see the major pieces. An extraordinary building, though the scale is a little overwhelming, particularly given the lack of signage which can be disorienting. We found the paper map difficult to navigate but the app was helpful...More

Very nice museum, with wonderful paintings. You don't have to miss Rembrandt's "Night Watch" and "Skaters in a winter landscape"; they are fantastic. There are not only paintings, but also decorative arts. If you want to see more or less everything, consider that you should...More

Love the Rijksmuseum and all of the colleactions. Amazing classics from Rembrandt and Vermeer. My favorite is the Chinese collection of artifacts. I could spend the entire day in the museum but take at least 2 hours to really go through

The Rijks is renowned and now I know why. Yes there is the famous Nightwatch and the aura it creates, but Waterloo is absolutely fantastic, what a masterpiece. There is so much to see from grand masters to models of ships (brilliant), to muskets and...More

It's the #1 attraction for a reason. Before you enter, the surrounding area is beautiful. The gardens at the front must be amazing in spring, but are still beautiful in winter. We had a wander around the rear and had something to eat before we...More

This was one of my favorite art museums. I've seen soooo many art museums that they all tend to blend together with few that stand out. This was certainly one of the stand-outs. Well laid-out in space and never felt crowded. The only let-down was...More

An impressive building with an impressive collection. Rembrandts ‘Nigh Watch’ is a big attraction and really draws the crowds. The Museum layout allows you to meander from room to room but do use the free guide so as you don’t miss anything. Good facilities, but...More

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

If you are real Escher fan, you might want to consider a trip to Leeuwarden to see the special Escher exhibition in the Fries Museum. Leeuwarden is a 2 hour train trip away from Amsterdam.

Yes the museums are open on Queens day but there is no public transport within the inner caal belt so you will have to push you little one all over the place in a buggy I guess and that will not be fun as the streets will be very crowded so forget AF huis that day. The VG & Rijksshould be OK but bear in mind that one of the biggest events is on the Museum Plein. Vondel Park is probably a good location for you though. Depend entirely on the weather.

I'm interested in the responses you get, as we're traveling to Amesterdam for three nights in March. I wanted to fit Castle Muiderslot into my itinerary, but we don't have enough time. Not sure if you're into medieval castles, but it looks pretty cool. That might be fun on your 4th day.
