  • This museum is an asset for the city of Amsterdam, because of the location, architecture and the rotating exhibits which sometimes features artwork on loan from the St. Petersburg Hermitage. In the late 17th Century this majestic building served as a home for elderely women. Now the inside has been renovated to provide an interior designed by architects Merkx+Girod. It can feel a bit cramped during high visitor loads. Overall worth a visit once the other major museums have been checked off.
  • A wonderful look inside the art of the Dutch portraits. The museum is well organized, with cool audio visual tours. The paintings are huge. Well worth the visit.
  • This review is only for the Spanish Masters currently on display. Only 1 El Greco, and some 2nd or 3rd tier paintings mostly from not very well known artists. Not worth the ticket. Like the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, the lighting could be a lot better.
  • It is very good museum. Typically have very nice topics for exhibitions and the exhibitions usually have great settings. However the information provided usually is very limited and not very useful.
  • Although the permanent exposition is beautifully organized around a very interesting theme, the temporary ones leave much to be desired in both quantity of artworks and their quality.
