Even though I live very close to Amsterdam, I had never actually been to the museums here. The Rijksmuseum should be on everyone's list and I'm very glad I finally went there. Of course the art on display is from some of the best painters in the world. There is background information shown next to every painting, and the mobile gives you a lot of extra information regarding the art. I was there during the holidays and it was quite busy, but I still had a good view of every painting. Would recommend going outside of the holiday period though if you prefer a calmer visit.
