Well, we didn't actually go to the museum, so this is a review of the museum's store. It's quite eclectic and they carry several kid's games and books that we found very entertaining and bought a few gifts. If you go to a museum nearby, it's well worth a visit. Of course if you like museum stores, but this one... More

We wanted to like this museum ... but frankly we're tired of 'modern art' museums (like this one) that present huge gallery spaces that offer only a smattering of silly, ill-conceived contemporary works of art. Really a waste of space. Spend your time at the Rijks or Van Gogh. Sorry to say; just didn't enjoy our visit.

This museum is modern art and you will see what looks like a warehouse for IKEA in some of the halls. Some of those enjoying this museum have smoked some of Amsterdam's finest weed before entering and thus they perhaps see more in the paintings and even the window shades than the rest of us do. Nonetheless, it is exactly... More

I was a bit disappointed yet it might be my taste in modern art isn't what it should be. For as large as the place is it didn't seem to display much. My recommendation is make it low priority unless your are a huge modern art fan.

Having been to the Stedelijk before I had high expectations. Since I was there a few years ago they've changed the permanent collection. It is still nice, but not as 'new and innovative' as I was hoping for. Being one of the more progressive museums in Amsterdam I was a little disappointed. Luckily they had an amazing photography exhibition upstairs.... More

With two famous museums just nearby this museum can be easily missed. I have just visited it during my 3rd trip to Amsterdam and... immediately felt in love with it. With Kadinsky, Chagall, Malevitch, Rothko or Mondrian works it is a truly must for every artlover

Even if you are not wild about modern art, this museum should be a definite stop in Amsterdam. There's an entire design section, where materials, styles, and imaginative uses of space are highlighted. An incredible exhibit of outlandish machines that serve no purpose other than movement, sound, and surprising the onlooker.

Absolutely loved this place and didn't expect too. Best thing, apart from the art on display is the fact that you can take photos. My phone went into overdrive and I've got so many lovely shots which I can now put together to make up some creative pieces of my own. Loved the book choices too in the ground floor... More

This museum is always going to be in the shadows of it's neighbour, van Gogh. If you're visiting this area, it's likely that you will have done van Gogh in the same day so you're naturally going to compare the two. You'll be here about 1-2 hours, it depends how long you look at each piece of art.

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.
