“Interesting Museum”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

After living a few years now in the Netherlands, I finally visited the Rijksmuseum for the first time for Museum Night this month. It was packed for the event. The building is old with a lovely ceiling and rather big with a few exhibitions worth seeing, particularly for me the delightful old doll houses.

“A bit of culture”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

My first time at the Rijksmuseum was impressive, fabulous collections and even with all the work that is going on it is a must.
My favored painting is "the milk maid" by Vermeer, I also liked the Night watch by Rembrandt and the Chinese ceramics

“Superb”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Superb gallery of paintings and, for a lover of old Dutch masters, heaven on earth! They are apparently constantly in a state of renovation but this doesn't detract from the quantity and quality of the art on display. As with so many of the top galleries such as the National in London or the Louvre in Paris, you could spend days here. Good shop too!

“This art museum is a gem!”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

We took a guided tour of the Rijksmuseum with an excellent guide who did not rush through, but gave us time to see the wonderful exhibits here. Although undergoing renovation at the moment, there was enough of the collection available for us to spend a whole morning there.
