This was a large a very beautiful museum with a variety of paintings and art work. The building itself was under construction which made it difficult to fully appreciate on the outside. There was a lovely garden area with statues that was quite pleasant. The...More

Beautiful building inside and outside. Easy to spend 3-4 hours there just by being lost in Dutch history. Very informative, very nice collection.

I enjoyed this museum very much as there are lots to see. Not just the famed Rembrandt art pieces, this museum is home to other sculptures, doll houses, and artifacts. This would be an interesting visit even though you're not into art appreciation. Make time...More

building is well laid out and logical flow around the exhibits. All have Dutch and English information about each piece at the same point. However this causes lots of people to congregate. By splitting English and Dutch descriptions to either side may alieviate the crowds.

Only a couple of vermeers! RIDICULOUS! Although there were some other good paintings and very well- laid out information sheets that tell you about the various artists. Lots of beautiful Rembrandts though, so I thought that made it a bit better. It was quite good...More

As much a collection of some of the world's greatest collection of art as a historical overview of the Golden Age and the Netherland's place in it. I really wanted to spend the day in a bar, but this was much better ;o)

Although the renovation to the Rijks museum are still on going and the museum is only 20% open, it is well worth visiting. The Rembrant selections are exceptional and it is one of the only places to view Vermeer. The gorgeous building alone is well...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.
