    Jessie Burton says: The Rijksmuseum is stunning and I love it as a fascinating, cool, accessible museum, as well as for the part it played in inspiring The Miniaturist. I came across Petronella Oortman’s doll’s house there by chance. It’s an exact scale replica of her real home, and Oortman spent a fortune having it created. I thought at the time it was an interesting story, but I didn’t think I was going to write a novel about it. I’m in its debt, really.

    The Rijksmuseum is the largest and the most attractive museum in the Netherlands, with more than one million visitors each year. Opened in spring of 2013 after a decade of renovation, the museum has a wonderful collection of the 17th C. Dutch Golden Age masterpieces. Famous “The Night Watch” by Rembrandt as well as other celebrated paintings like Vermeer’s “The Milkmaid” and “Woman reading a letter”, “The Windmill at Wijk bij Duurstede" by van Ruisdael, “The Burgomaster of Delft and his Daughter

    Overwhelming; the art is abundant en beautiful, there's plenty of information, the atmosphere is wonderful and it's in the heart of Amsterdam. For so many reasons is this a place to go!

    Didn't go right into it. Just passed through on way to van gough museum. Stunning looking building and well worth a look at. If I had more time would have looked around more

    One of the most important museum of Amsterdam, Rembrandt, Vermeer and Rubens on display. Few meters from titel : I Amsterdam. Recommend to visit this piece of the Netherlands history.

    I first went to the museum as a very young boy and spent time looking at the Nightwatch with very few people around, but now it's a scramble to get close to the painting. Still, there are lots of other fabulous artworks to look at and study without the scores of tourists. This is a marvellous place, but do allow a lot of time to really enjoy what is on offer and you will be rewarded.

    Great setting, with a great open area and the Van Gogh Museum directly behind it (Museumplein), probably one of the best art museums in Europe. Tickets are available in advance and I would recommend taking advantage. Rembrandt of course is the star of the museum but there are many other attractions as well. My only complaint, the audio system was out that day and the only companion one could have was their app, not as good. Photography is allowed, no flash.

    This is like the Dutch V&A with more paintings, well worth a visit. It is very busy in the middle of the day, so it's worth going early

    Impressive museum, very large collection and diverse exhibitions. You need at least 3hrs to see everything and that's rushed, so if you don't have much time, prepare a wish list! I rarely get lost, but for some reason had to ask my way to security guards to find some of the exhibits despite having a map...! Part of this is due to the complexity of the buildings, but it seems to me that there should be more signage! For example when I'm told to go left but only see a sign for toilets but no sign for an exhibit, I don't go as it seems odd to follow toilets to go see an exhibit...! So I search farther, but no it was the same entrance as the one leading to the toilets. There really is something to do there!!! Good thing that the guards were patient with me...

    Allow at least 3 to 4 hours if you love history and beautiful antiques. Don't miss the gardens around the museum.

    Entry is extremely expensive, most of museum is artwork, extremely busy and unable to get around entire museum. No one to greet on arrival or offer map/ museum guide with tickets purchased across the road outside of museum itself.

    Rijks museum is a must see place in Amsterdam along with vangog museum. You can see a wide collection of Rembrandt which are fabulous. Courteous staff everywhere. There are nice sofas for sitting in each room when you are tired. Even replica of our natraj vigraha is there. You can easily spend three hours there if you are a history lover.

    Give yourself at least 3 hours. Contains a very ecclectic mix of art. From Rembrandt to post modern exhibits.

    amazing place of history and architecture and great photo opportunity with the I amsterdam sign, you should go in the morning as you will have an hour to peacefully explore the museum before it gets too crowded. the only thing that upsets me it that the young security guard at the main entrance was very rude as before you enter you must have your card scanned and i was standing at the begging of the line and he kept letting every one in before me and i was just in front of him i told him excuse me and he told me that every one wants to go first even though i have been standing in his face for two minutes. other then this the museum is worth a visit and you can also go to the van gouh and the modern arts museum just in front of it, there is stalls that open at 10 am where you can buy souvenirs and food there is also a supermarket next to the modern arts museum where you can buy food while relaxing on the garden.

    Wonderful museum full of treasures. I did the 90 min audio tour but doubtless could have spent much longer if time permitted. It does get very busy so go early. Signage could be improved but that's a minor quibble.

    Good general-purpose museum if you're interested in seeing more than just Van Gogh (there's a separate museum for that!) Beautiful space and the 'I Am-sterdam' sign is right out front of the rear entrance. Many paintings from the Dutch Masters, including the famous 'Night Watchmen'. Logically organised and pretty easy to get around too.

    It's 90% art gallery rather than museum. Some infamous paintings within including the Rembrandt Night Watch and some notable Vermeer's. Long queue for tickets that I would guess could take 30 minutes +. We were lucky to have a barcode from Booking.com that allowed us to go to a separate cashier and avoid the queue. The building is v large and impressive. The collections are arranged chronologically in groups of 50 years across 4 large floors split into 2 main wings each. It's still fairly easy to get lost in there and not all the exit signs are correct ! If you are a real art person then probably a must see. If you have only a passing interest, then you may find it overwhelming after the first hour and not cheap at 17.50 euros each.

    Rembrandt, Vermeer, Van Gogh, and more. Collection is most amazing. Get there early before the crowds.
