It's a definite must see museum! The multimedia guide is essential and it provides different tours within the museum, most will last for either 45 or 90 minutes according to your choice. You will probably need to do 2 or 3 tours if you an art lover. Just don't combine it with Van Gogh museum on the same day.

If you like museums this is a must visit while in Amsterdam. I do not like museums, but I did still enjoy this place. I downloaded the Rijksmuseum app on my phone which was brilliant because it has lots of different tour options, all lasting different lengths of time or focussing on different ages. I did a 90 minute tour... More

I had not been here since it reopened after renovation work. I bought an advance ticket and was in the museum in minutes. The layout is exceptionally well organised and the content is fascinating, historical and the whole experience is one of the best days I have spent in a museum in any city.

Our trip through the museum was excellent. We purchased the audio tour which aided tremendously to navigate the thousands of artifacts, focusing on the highlights. Personnel were extraordinarily helpful throughout our visit!.

Art for all the family, after 2 visits I'm sure there are still exhibits I have yet to see! Make sure to start early in the morning - loads to see! And also take a bottle of water!

I actually enjoyed this more than the Louvre in Paris. The dutch masters in the "Hall of Honor" was amazing. Getting up close to a Vermeer and Rembrandt is almost a profound spiritual experience. Although not as large as the Louvre, this is no problem and spending a good day there you get to experience most of it. Many different... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighbourhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
