This is a large museum. You can spend 1 day powering through it all (or by selective viewing) or afew days (luckily the ticket allows you entry for a good two weeks). It has a good collection of paintings from the Dutch masters. I personally...More

Visited with my husband who has zero interest in museums. But we downloaded the app and did the recommended highlights tour. I loved it and he enjoyed playing navigator and telling me about the paintings (yes he's a big child really!!!). Great tour though, only...More

Huge number of Old Masters paintings and art works in an incredible building. Tickets are valid for 12 months from purchase which is great in order to be able to go back and view at your leisure.

Very very strongly recommended... start from the 3rd floor at a quick glance then move to the 2nd floor and spend a life time there and for warm down go a bit around the 1st floor

The building itself dates to the 19th century and has been beautifully restored. There are gorgeous works of art, priceless gems, and historical artifacts. This is one of the best museums in the world. If you can only see one thing in Amsterdam it should...More

Had a great time exploring this gallery. We downloaded the app and followed the highlights tour. I think it took about an hour and a half - it took a bit of getting used to the navigating at first, but after that the tour works...More

I skipped by things I didn't like, and stopped for those I did. It was a great chance to see some theater-screen size Rembrandts.

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

If you are real Escher fan, you might want to consider a trip to Leeuwarden to see the special Escher exhibition in the Fries Museum. Leeuwarden is a 2 hour train trip away from Amsterdam.
