Beware, the Boijmans is being renovated at the moment! The entry cost is expensive: 15.00euros for general admission, plus an additional 3.50euros for the surrealism exhibition. Unfortunately there isn't really much to see except the surrealism exhibition, due to the renovations, so I felt a bit ripped off and it soured my experience. The staff were wonderful though.

This visit was such a disappointment. There is little left to see while they remake the display - and there was no guide to explain what was left and where to find it. I have never before had such an unpleasant gallery experience. The cloak room was the only redeeming feature

Travfirst (who reviewed this gallery on May 8) is right. Don't go before June 10, when the Collection's 39 rooms being madeover will be ready. The museum's website and the ticket seller at the entrance do warn you about the room closures. I went in anyway: the cost was €15 to access the Collection (what little was available) plus €3.50...

We found ourselves here early one morning with takeaway coffee's and pastries. A great place to walk around and take in the morning air with some intriguing art all around.

This is a short term warning - entire Flemish/Dutch masters collection is closed for renovation or on loan. They charge additional €3.5 pp with Museumkaart or €18 for admission, and there is nothing to see but the closed rooms and some wired expressionists.

This museum was started by the wife of a very rich harbor baron. (Btw; not the only one in the Netherlands: see Kröller Muller near Arnheim). The collection is quite varied and it's difficult to find the large line in it, but it's a must visit if you're in Rotterdam.

Very good. I wanted to see Brueghel's TOWER OF BABEL but it was out on loan to Japan. Allow an afternoon to see the complete collection
