Beautiful exhibit of Kasimir Malevitch design and art thoroughly explained his movement from cubism and expressionism to suprematism and constructivism. The permanent exhibition features several very important paintings. Don't miss those by Chagall and the Van Gogh, along with some interesting Picasso pieces. But seeing the Dutch painters of the 20th century was perhaps the most interesting part of the visit. Definitely worth a stop on your museum tour. Great combination of classic paintings with lesser-known Dutch artists that we very much enjoyed. Easy visit... you can get a very good sense of the place in less than two hours without rushing through. The furniture and industrial design permanent exhibition was fascinating... from Art Deco to the Dutch modernism of Reitveld to the playfulness of Joe Colombo and Ettore Sottsas,

I really love this museum. It is not too big, great for a half-day visit. The permanent collection is great, and their special exhibitions usually very good. I just went to the Malevich exhibition which was very impressive, and beautiful. But no five stars because of the staff/ entry procedure. With a yearcard for Dutch museums you can get a ticket from a machine to enter. These machines are really not funtioning very well, many people expereince quite some confusion. We had to wait in line here for over 20 minutes. When there was quite some malfunctioning with the machines, we went to one of the nice looking hosting ladies, whonare standing around chatting to one another or looking at their smart phones. When I asked this particular young women for help, she just shrugged and her eyes went back to her smartphone. Seriously.

We spent a wonderful morning at the Stedelijk. The art collection is very impressive, and has something for everyone here. From the amazing presentation of visual art and the history of design to the modern masters, this museum has everything. Go!

My favorite museum in Amsterdam. Yes, there is some art that is too contemporary for me to appreciate but walk on by and check out the rest of the collection. There was a temporary exhibit of work by Malevich which was a show stopper. Could have stayed all day.

I never miss it in Amsterdam, always an interesting visit with best temporary exhibitions and a good overview of contemporary art in their permanent collection.
