Probably the best art museum to visit in Amsterdam, with lots of highlights including Rembrandt's the Night Watch and one of Van Gogh's self-portraits. You could easily while away 2-3 hours here.

This place was insanely busy but we did manage to enjoy a walk around, I would of loved a tour as I think they would of pointed out several more paintings than just the big highlights.
It’s not amazingly child friendly. It’s a gallery. My daughter did get bored. So we stayed for only a couple of hours.

Go early and be there at opening time as it is very quiet. Worth downloading the app to help you walk though the museum. Check in your jackets etc as it can het warm.

On a sunny day the outdoor garden is a nice place to stop and rest.

Allow at least 2 hours

Good museum worth spending time at. Right off of a bus stop on the Amsterdam bus tour line. Many displays with varied subjects with a little bit for everyone. Also close to park with great photo taking places (next to the Amsterdam signage, side garden with fountains) and within walking distance from the Van Gough museum.

This is a popular museum and once visited you will realise why. A must go to place if in Amsterdam. Many excellent paintings and well presented. There is often a special event which is usually very good. Cafe is a little expensive but food quality very high. Good access to all areas
