Of course, there are Rembrandts but this museum has so much more to see and view. Large and the tickets are priced fairly. I suggest purchase in advance to avoid lines. Great cafe also for mint tea and a rest. Go. Highly recommended.

There are good collections and art. However the museum is not well organized. You can easily get lost and see what you have seen before. It worth to visit when the weather is not good!

Is really amazing but if you try seen everything in one day can be very boring. The rembrant screens are very beautiful but there are many other lesser known artists equally talented in the museum.

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
