There is a crowded field of great museums in Europe so for a relatively small display space to make you feel that you've had a great experience as you leave is very telling This museum has one of the best printed information displays of any museum. Not only is the quantity there but the quality as well. No matter how... More

I enjoyed a trip to the Boijmans museum on a Sunday afternoon. It has a wonderful mix of old (classics from the Dutch masters) as well as new in the form of installations and design, amongst others. I particularly enjoyed the showcase of local Rotterdam artists.

We visited this museum as we were staying around the corner and found it full of interesting and varied masterpieces which we wouldn't normally find in other museums. The variety and quality of pieces was wonderful and in a wonderful peaceful museum which allowed for you to enjoy the art without being rushed or crowded by a lot of people.

The museum was great it houses a plethora of art and sculptures ranging from medieval paintings up to the modern day. you will get to see many famous artists on display including Monet, Picasso and Rembrandt. The museum is well laid out in a thoughtful and coherent manor. I... More

Small but nice collection of Dutch old masters and European XIX and early XX century painters. Don't miss Rembrandt's portrait of his son Titus, the room with French impressionists or the section with the Surrealist paintings from the collection of sir Edward James.

The collection at the Boijmans is very varied. Lots of paintings and art from different eras, with interesting interpretation and information in each room. There are sections on design as well, worth a wide range of styles and media. Café and garden area really enjoyable. Easily accessible on foot or tram from Central Station. Definitely recommended for art and design... More

Great museum, combining design, contemporary art and old European masters in the heart of Rotterdam. Close by NAi, Kunsthal and Museumpark.

We were a bit rushed to see this Museum but nonetheless enjoyed the quick walk through and enjoyed the older art more that the modern. I would say this is very much for the devoted art lover rather than the general person liking art works. But I never got to experience the whole museum, will be back to take a... More

Wonderful selection of new and old masters. The Olafur Eliasson exhibition has screens of video waves over actual bodies of water, creaky wooden floors planks, perfect for a city on the water. Don't miss climbing up into the Pipilotti Reis' rope net and laying down on it to watch the videos on the ceiling.
