The Rijks is renowned and now I know why. Yes there is the famous Nightwatch and the aura it creates, but Waterloo is absolutely fantastic, what a masterpiece. There is so much to see from grand masters to models of ships (brilliant), to muskets and...More

It's the #1 attraction for a reason. Before you enter, the surrounding area is beautiful. The gardens at the front must be amazing in spring, but are still beautiful in winter. We had a wander around the rear and had something to eat before we...More

This was one of my favorite art museums. I've seen soooo many art museums that they all tend to blend together with few that stand out. This was certainly one of the stand-outs. Well laid-out in space and never felt crowded. The only let-down was...More

An impressive building with an impressive collection. Rembrandts ‘Nigh Watch’ is a big attraction and really draws the crowds. The Museum layout allows you to meander from room to room but do use the free guide so as you don’t miss anything. Good facilities, but...More

One of the top museums in Amsterdam, it has a great collection of classic paintings. After the extensive renewal the whole experience of visiting the museum is much better; plus, they now have a fine dining restaurant worth the visit in itself.

I love that Amsterdam has a "museum quarter" so, in theory, you can visit all of the museums on the same day. The museum is well laid out and has several very impressive pieces. My personal favorites were the Rembrandt Halls and the upper floor...More

Get their early and go straight to the top floor and enjoy the great hall before the crowds arrive. Then make your way down through the exhibitions at your own pace. Once you have paid for your ticket you can enter and leave as you...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

If you are real Escher fan, you might want to consider a trip to Leeuwarden to see the special Escher exhibition in the Fries Museum. Leeuwarden is a 2 hour train trip away from Amsterdam.
