There's so much to see here and so many things to take in that you will want to budget a day or at least 5-6 hours to see and take it all in. Tired? Grab a coffee and dessert in the cafe and go back...More

This over the budget renovation completed years later then projected is well worth the wait. The curators had to choose from million artifacts to display the cultural heritage of this great trading nation. Well worth is the introductory tour highlighting the great Dutch masters.

I am a history major, minoring in Art History. I practically cried when I entered this museum. There are so many pieces to see on several different levels. I suggest you give yourself at least 3 hours to see it all.

I have had the opportunity to visit the Rijksmuseum three times. In 2010, it was still under renovation construction, but the famous Vermeers and Rembrandts were on display. When there in 2014, the Allain de Botton Art as Therapy was on display and I got...More

Looking at Rembrandts paintings will put you in another world. The colors, the techniques, will leave you breathless. There is too much to see in this museum to name all that I saw. Loved every single thing I viewed. Can't wait to go there again.

Van Gogh Museum is better, but this museum has does have Rembrandt's Night Watch, which is incredible. We went when they had a "Japan Modern" exhibit, which was fascinating. Really loved the wood block art work. Gardens surrounding the museum are also excellent (and free).

The Museum was huge and it may even take more than a half day to finish. It was beautifully designed. I really loved the library stacked with books from top to bottom. One thing to notice, you have to take a different gate to see...More

What do I need to elaborate: De Nachtwacht (the Night Watch) by Rembrandt says it all! And of course may other splendid items in a stunning setting.

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
