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.

This was a good museum to understand not nly art but also the history of the Netherlands. One could spend the whole day but it may still not be enough

Stared in wonder at Rembrandt's most famous works. No words to express how that felt; will treasure that forever.

Most beautiful building in Amsterdam! I love the gardens, which are a kinda of secret and hopeful will stay open throughout the winter.

Absolutely to visit!

If you love art, this is an essential stop. "The Night Watch" is currently under restoration, but it is still observable from behind the large protective glass window for those who work. A little disappointment for us, but acceptable given the importance of the work.

Beautiful and vast collection

I spent almost 6 hours there and time just flew by. It’s a bit difficult to navigate the space, but the quality of the art work are top and they are beautifully curated and presented. I especially enjoyed the current exhibit of “Remember Me” in the side wing.

Neat stuff hidden in a maze. no drinking fountains.

Night watch has been torturously poured over by computer wizards for 5 years. I suggest they do their computer wizardry at night so the rest of us can just admire the master painting.
I like having a free audio app. However, there were no words that guided me from place to place so I was usually lost unable to find the highlighted item in the tour. Lastly, the timed entry may have been critical at certain times of year. Now, it seemed ludicrous that people were being sent away with a half empty museum because they're smartphones do not have international service and could not buy their tickets online. And, a little disappointing that the whole museum shuts down at 5:00

A Great Art Museum

The title says it all. It also contains other exhibits such as old weaponry and models of ships. It is well worth the time and cost.

Disappointed
Sep 2021
What the Rijksmuseum doesn't tell you on their website is that in order to access the Museum Shop or the Museum Cafe you must have purchased an entry ticket of 20 Euros !!

I understand the need to control the numbers of people access the building during these times of Covid but there should be some accommodation. Tickets can be checked past the access to the shop and cafe.

Of course, this won't deter people from going to the Museum, which is incredible of course but just a notice to the public since the Rijksmuseum website doesn't advise that the shop and cafe are not accessible to everyone
