Top ways to experience Rijksmuseum
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Get your walking shoes on, its somehow bigger than you think, you just keep walking and walking and find yourself getting into a new room when you thought it must have been a dead end, doesnt disappoint tho.

Unbelievable museum. Excellent collection and magnificent building. Must visit. If short on time, 2.5 hours is minimum.

Really impressed during our visit. There were many pieces we recognized, and many more that we did not, but still enjoyed seeing! The audio tour is a must to learn about the background and history of the items on display. The building itself is beautiful and wonderfully maintained- the photo is of the old library.

The museum is very large and has a wide range of things to look at. Mainly art but there are other things too. I would recommend a tour as the museum is very large and the app isn't super helpful aside from the short snippets you can get using the numbers. get there early as it got very busy at 11-11:30.

One of our favorite world museums. After more than 15 years, we returned to Amsterdam and a top attraction we hoped would still be amazing. The Rijks did not disappoint with world-class art collection, especially of Dutch Masters. The museum is enormous, beyond what most people can endure in one day, so we rented an audio tour for the first time, and it guided us through highlights of their collection in about 2 hours, allowing us time to see a few other sections of the museum. They have a nice impressionist section and of course Van Gogh, but much more Van Gogh is available in the eponymously named museum nearby. This is a not-to-be-missed site in Amsterdam.

We loved visiting this fantastic huge museum in a beautiful building. We spent about 3-4 hours walking round and I still think we missed some areas. I would definitely recommend a visit if in Amsterdam.

Even though it was the second time for me at Rijksmuseum I felt surprised by its beauty. It is the house of Flemish painters, they are all there. Vermeer, Rembrandt, Avercamp etc. You can't miss this place while in Amsterdam. Adult ticket 20euros.

Outside, the sheer majesty of the building is impressive. Inside, be prepared to be blown away by gallery after gallery, floor after floor of art, culture and history. Jaw dropping.

I would suggest a guided tour versus going through on your own. There were many questions I had or additional information that I would have found useful.
