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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Of course the art, sculptures and artefacts on display are amazing. We booked the multimedia tour and on recommendation did the Best Of tour. There are great descriptions alongside each item as well as material to pick up and read to learn more depth to the subject matter.
There aren’t enough lockers but there is a cloakroom and you can leave bags (incl handbags) safely there too.
We had no chance of getting into the on-site cafe for a drink as the queue was immense but we were directed by a lovely member of staff to go to a little coffee spot on the 1st floor, which was much quieter. They do cakes but there’s not a great deal of seating.
A lovely way to spend a drizzly morning and great value for money

A must if in Amsterdam! A huge museum with the famous paintings of the Dutch masters, pottery & cabinetry. What is also enlightening is the global influence of the Dutch and the immense history.

Advice:
*Plan to go for at least half a day.
*Buy tickets in advance.
*Use the audioguide for specific tours (unless you know what you are going for).
*Don't bring small children.
*Stop for a coffee a least once!

It's not just Night's Watch. Pity the crowd around this picture because there is so much more to see here.

We thought this would be dry as dust, but it was a fascinating and entertaining museum, which gave us real insight into the Dutch experience.

The app is supposed to tell you where you are but failed to work out which floor we were on (even with the most up to date iPhone!). The signage between rooms is appalling and as many of the rooms are very dim using the map in the free leaflet was impossible. A very frustrating and disappointing visit.
We saw the key things we had gone to see but after that couldn't face trying to work out what to see so left.
The museum was incredibly quiet which possibly says something.
We think they were trying to be too minimalist with signage and information on walls and as a result they have created a very disappointing user experience.
It didn't affect us as we are fit but there are steps and stairs everywhere making it challenging for the less fit and able bodied. There are lifts but you need to be able to see the map in a dim room to find them.
Shame as the museum has some wonderful art.

A great collection of Dutch art, as the Asian portion is relatively small. The masterpieces are presented in in the best environment, light and without big crowds.
The exception is Night Watch, which is surrounded by a big glass room and partially (bottom of the painting) obstructed by the scaffolding for restoration.
The annoying "woke" fliers with unrelated social issues are attached to some paintings.

We did one day but you probably need two as it has so much to see. The museum covers so much you will need to be well organised before you arrive. It is worth doing some pre visit research. Also pre book.

Beautiful building with timeless Dutch paintings and sculptures. This museum, not only astonishing from the outside, is completely filled with paintings I thought I'd only see in books. There are decent amounts of history written (in English and Dutch) on each piece. During my visit yesterday, I found the names of Dutch painters whose works I had never seen before and started to research them on my own. I felt like a little kid on a field trip and I'm halfway through my thirties. I think that this was my favorite museum in Amsterdam, with Van Gogh at a close second. Give yourself about 3-4 hours to see this one though. The size of the Battle of Waterloo is worth checking out alone.

Tip: Don't take photos of everything in the museum. You'll never look at those photos again and you're just making it annoying for everyone else. The same goes for concerts and fireworks. Be a courteous patron.
