If you're interested in art, this museum is the reason to travel beyond Amsterdam ;). The classic dutch Flemish and dutch masters; Breugel 's Tower of Babel, for instance. More modern works, like Dali, up to contemporary art.

This museum is set in lovely gardens and the cafe downstairs has a large terrace which serves delicious food for lunches. The museum can be a little confusing to navigate but it has wonderful collections from ancient to modern, with a number of masters like Rembrant rubbing shoulders with Warhol and Munch.

To paraphrase Wilde from Lady Windemere's Fan : "this museum seem to know the price of everything, but the value of nothing". I have never before seen descriptive notes beside paintings which reference the price paid for paintings, or what a great bargain they were! Here there were many, maybe reflecting the pragmatic Dutch approach. Nice collection though, nicely displayed.

This museum has pieces of the most famous painters like Bosch, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Magritte and Dali. Also there are various changing exhibitions so if you visit the museum more often you will see something new every time. Nice cafe if you are hungry. And don't forget to take a walk in the museum's garden. If you want to see... More

This is an excellent museum indeed. Fine collection, great exhibitions. Recommended. And while in this area do not miss the huis Sonneveld, a real gem just in the neighbourhood. Excellent architecture, wow furniture.

This museum has some art that you've seen before - but not in real life! The famous Bruegel painting The tower of Babel, for instance, is very different when you're standing close and can see all the details. Beautiful collection of Dutch artists through the ages, including Rembrandt, Toorop, you name it, they have it. Enjoyed the explanations, too. Rotterdam... More

The museum has a rather diverse collection and is not specialized in a certain field. This is a disadvantage. However, I recommend to visit and experience the ''Notion Motion'' exhibition of the Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson (until September 18, 2016).
