“well worth a quick visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Just to confirm that this review is for the Schiphol airport branch of the national museum - as many reviews seem to be reviewing the national museum instead. Anyhow, the room - for that is what it is - is a very pleasant attraction with varying exhibitions - and is a good place to spend 15-20 minutes.

“Interesting Information”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

This place has good exhibition of art for a very busy place. It has also free WiFi for the first 30 minutes and many desks with plug in slots (so you can charge your drained batteries)

“Instead of the Rijksmuseum in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

If you do not have time to visit the Rijksmuseum in town, this is a perfect alternative. Lot smaller, that is true, but with beautiful art.

“Small, but carefully arranged art exhibit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

With a only few hours between flights and not able to travel downtown to the Rijksmuseum we dropping into the airport location. Of course it is not anything resembling the full size museum but to have a quiet, comfortable space at an airport to look at the twenty pieces of original classic paintings is refreshing. The pieces change regularly and have a theme: travel, business, and history of Dutch art. The Rijksmuseum gift store and 'museum' are located between areas E and F. The art is exhibited in a small room above the gift store, stairs are involved but there is an elevator. It is free and is open from 7am to 8pm. Worth a visit if you have limited time.

“It has disappeared!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

I was looking forward to my usual visit to this super little art museum right in the airport but it had gone from its location by the Rijksmuseum Shop and a kids play area was there instead.

I assume it has closed as the main Museum in the city proper is open again? A pity as a little bit of culture in an airport is a breath of much needed fresh air.
