My advice, book online before you go and get there as early as you can. Liked the recently opened and redesigned museum but it is not easy to negotiate your way round it - we had to ask an attendant twice and the first one...More
Just when you thought you seen a great museum, Tate Modern London, Louisiana in Denmark, Museo Reina Sofia in Spain along comes the renovated Rijks Museum in Amsterdam. Simply breathtaking raising the bar for another generation.

The Rijksmuseum is huge. We had the Museumkaart which allowed us to bypass the ticket queue, which was very long. Go early and be prepared to stay a while. With three hours, we may have "Seen" about a third of the museum, but not in...More
The architecture of the building is stunning. Amazing paintings wonderfully displayed.
The only minor niggle was that if you take a break and go for a coffee you have to join a super long queue to get back in again!
It has been much publicised: The renovation of the 17th century, prestigious Dutch Rijksmuseum (which means as much as Government Museum) has come to an end. It reopened last week. The museum's world-famous collection boasts many artefacts, but is best known for its illustrious paintings,...More

This afternoon I visited the Rijksmuseum for just a couple of hours. It's not huge like the Louvre, but it contains a fabulous collection which anyone interested in art history or Dutch history just cannot overlook. The renovations are beautiful. The works are accessible and...More
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.
