Owner description: The Rijksmuseum is the museum of the Netherlands. The completely renovated Rijksmuseum tells the story of the Netherlands from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. Including works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals, and more! Most famous is Rembrandt's masterpiece the Night Watch. A new display of the collection, a renewed building, new public facilities, a revamped garden and a new Asian Pavilion. Open daily from 9 am to 5 pm.

Finally it's open again! The building, always lovely, is now gorgeous inside and out, with large airy spaces and of course some excellent exhibits. It's not cheap - 15 euros - but you will easily need 2-3 hours to get round everything. There's also the free-to-enter gardens outside which have sculptures and a lovely fountain.
Word of warning though - you won't enjoy it very much if you have a bad back. There *are* seats dotted about, however some bright spark has decided to put many of the description plaques at ankle level. Really! So you have to bend right down to read them. My other issue was that things were often not labelled at all - there would be one plaque for a whole cabinet of stuff, instead of info on individual items. There are quite a few touchscreen displays (seemed to be an ipad in a steel casing), but these were all in Dutch, so I have no idea how good they were or not.
Overall though a grand day out, and a lovely shop at the end with a zillion souvenirs!

as a young couple we felt the need to go to a museum, but in my opinion it was a bit boring... the price to get in is pretty expensive ans it felt like a waist of money...

This museum is large, get there early to avoid a long queue and allow at least 2 - 3 hours to see the famous art works. You could easily spend 6 hours there. There are some amazing paintings there, including 'The Night Watch' and you can take photos.

We visited this museum a few years ago in May and lined up for more than an hour in the cold rain. We came here to see the Vermeer paintings and other Dutch works and were very impressed. Do recommend buying tickets online to avoid the queue.

This is another one of the world's great art museums. It has the largest collection of Vermeers, wonderful impressionist paintings, and old masters, and of course the famous THE NIGHT WATCH by Rembrandt. Don't miss this museum. Use the audio equipment on the tour and budget 4-5 hours! Simply superb!
