I’m sure this is great if you’re really interested in many odd artefacts, classical art and antique objects but this was not a particularly exciting museum. It did have audio guides but we opted out due to the expense and without them, we were absolutely clueless and effectively just nodding at pieces of art that eventually began to look the same. Can’t criticise too much as we got in for free being under 19, but if you’re paying €15-€25, don’t bother unless you’re really into this sort of thing and go to the Van Gogh Museum.

While one should definitely visit the rijksmuseum when you come to Amsterdam it’s not worth coming to Amsterdam for the rijks museum as one would for the ufizzi in Florence or Louvre in Paris. There was phenomenal Dutch masterpieces like Night watch and the milkmaid but and some others but they need much more.

The Van Gogh they have is tiny and we missed the Van Gogh museum having been told there are 2-3 pieces here including a self portrait and which was very small

A beautiful collection of the Dutch masters and other art, sculpture and artifacts. The size of the museum was very manageable, and not as overwhelming as the Louvre. A nice half-day visit.

I just visited for the first time and can't recommend it enough. Stunning architecture and layout, and of course The Nightwatch was a bucket list moment for any art lover. Went on a Saturday and it wasn't too busy...barely waited to get our tickets, so don't worry if you haven't prebooked and you happen to be in the neighbourhood. :)

When you look at the top things to do on TA, Rijksmuseum is up there. After seeing it for the first time you can see why. It is a stunning museum architecturally. In front of the museum it has the I am Amsterdam sign. We didn’t go inside the museum as we didn’t have enough time but we will next time. You can also cycle under the museum.
