  • Spent several hours in this gallery. Very helpful audio guides. Quite a large collection of German, dutch, and Italian paintings. Very well presented. Best of all it was not crowded like other large galleries and could really take your time and enjoy the collection.
  • Very large selection of amazing Masters of art. You need many hours to see it all so maybe be selective. I loved the Rembrandt and Caravaggio paintings but there were so many others to appreciate.
  • Huge painting gallery. We totally lost track of time & missed lunch completely, we were so enthralled! I will absolutely return.
  • Some pieces of this exhibition are truly impressive. Grab the free audioguide at the entrance for better enjoying the visit. The building is tucked away in a currently under development area. Not easy to find the entrance, but worth a visit if you have a couple hours to spend.
  • Amazing! Loved it! Definitely recommend!! I spent here 5 hours and it was not enough, I didn’t have time to check all the paintings and listen to all the audios. Masterpieces everywhere: Ruben, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Botticelli, and so many others. The audio guide was essential for me to understand the symbols and learn the stories behind the paintings. Very beautiful!! I entered with a 3 day museum pass and I didn’t pay for anything. Leave your stuff at the locker, it is free and you can focus on enjoying your visit.
