It was raining, so everyone on vacation went to the museum. it was very crowded in the main hall (the highlight). we have been to a lot of art museums around the world and would say this was fine, but not great. loved the 3 Vermeer's, the Rembrandt's are great, a couple of Picasso and 1 Monet. It was 15 Euros per person.

The Rijksmuseum has an impressive collection of works spanning many centuries (including well-known masterpieces like Rembrandt's The Night Watch and Vermeer's The Milk Maid). You probably won't be able to see everything, so be selective and plan where you go based on your interests. If you get your ticket online then you can go directly to the 'fast lane' and not spend your precious time in line.

Dutch Masters. I don't know any other place to see such a collection. The Vermeers, exquisite on their own, are in a hallway on the way to the big show. The collection is large but not completely overwhelming. And to top it all off, literally, there is an airplane on the top floor. I really like old airplanes. Sometime since 1970, the museum went through a huge renovation leaving a mix of the old brick pile and new glass and steel spaces. Lunch in the cafe was mixed with a limited menu and rather slow service. The museum shop is full of gifts at all price points. You'll need a few hours to see the greatest hits and a full day to wander into all the nooks and crannies.
