The building itself is incredible--cyclists can pass through the low level of the building. This encompasses the works of the Dutch Masters of the 17th Century--Rembrandt, Vermeer, etc. Backpacks are not allowed in the museum, but lockers are available. Very few pictures are allowed in...More

If you are a true art and history lover, do not miss the place. And don't forget that you really need a time: at least 2 hours to see everything.

We arrived early, and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast in the cafe overlooking the glass roofed atrium. The museum is of manageable size, displays are organized and not overwhelming. The main gallery is stunning, and not overcrowded. Don't miss the ships' models. One has a very...More

A great European museum. So much art; the Dutch Masters are well represented of course, but there is a good variety of other styles and eras as well. They have interesting Delft displays, and some sculpture. Something for everyone. The lines can be long, so...More

Huge museum filled with art. Much like the Louvre in Paris you can spend days wondering though it vast halls. Great library on art. While you can't walk around and look at the books the room itself is a beauty to behold. Plan your visit...More

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

During my stay in Amsterdam, I used Google Maps & Direction. (set your location, and then find direction) It was very helpful.
