This museum has a diverse collection spanning the spectrum from Old Masters to Modern, including a number of interactive exhibits. This was my favorite art museum of the seven we visited on our trip - the size was doable but not overwhelming and the collection is quite superb. The design sections were quite interesting as well. Note that there are... More

I came to Rotterdam specifically to visit this museum. It has a huge collection and only a fraction is on show at any one time. I really enjoyed the older work; especially Bosch, Bruegel (Tower of Babel) and the Ruebens sketches. There is also a fine survey of Dutch art throughout the collection. Modern work includes great pictures by Daubigny,... More

Beautiful building with the Old Masters next to more modern arts, paintings next to statues, all very accessible and near. When in Rotterdam, a must, if you like art - even just a little. Because of the wide variety a nice way to let your kids learn to enjoy a little art, without getting bored. The location is another asset:... More

It does not include the most famous Netherland art but tells the story of art in Netherlands well. An app or guide would help. Nice small cafe and an interesting place to hang your coats :)

We visited this place in late afternoon (from 2pm) and we should have gotten here earlier. IT really is a big place and requires quite some time to walk through. We concentrated on the paintings and it really is nicely done with each room introducing something new. . It is really worth an extensive visit.

What I call a non-specific museum. It started as the private collection of a rich shipping tycoon, so there is not a lot focus. But still very well worth a visit.

A very accessible museum. Well laid out. Surprisingly quiet during the week. Old Masters and changing modern exhibitions. Gorgeous gardens behind the museum filled with modern statues that you can view from the glass built on lunch restaurant. Also lovely to stroll there after you leave the museum. Beautiful rose garden and poplar trees. Don't miss this jewel of a... More
