Great collection of items and paintings from the 1500s up to present. Buy tickets in advance and go there early in the morning to avoid the queues. You can easily spend several hours in the museum. Be sure to check out ground floor with some amazing model ship displays.

The Rijksmuseum caters for all tastes with a little something for everyone from ancient to modern, all housed in a beautiful building. Had no problem getting in as we went on a Monday morning however worth buying advance tickets to reduce the lengthy waiting time at weekends. The collections are well laid out though patience required to get a good look at the must see masterpieces as you'd expect.

We arrived at 8.45 to avoid the queues we had seen on other days. Allocate quite some time to spend here as there is so much to see.

This museum show the part of history of Netherlands. Parts from other contries in the navigating period. The ware collection and the pictures of Rembrandt are fantastic. The pictures show the aristocracy in Amsterdan in 15th century.

Closed and partially closed for many years, the Museum reopened in April and they've done a fantastic job. Best to buy tickets online in advance and be prepared to queue for a while before being admitted. It's huge so plan what you want to see (for us it was the 17th century - 2nd floor). An amazing collection.
