  • Have gone here for free on Museum map at the entrance to guard Russian, tell me what and where to look. All the fun at the bottom. People almost gone, exhibits strange, but interesting. Making the Museum meets its nature. Enjoyed.

  • We spent several hours in the main exhibits. The art covered a wide range of styles and eras. It was a bonus that the audio tours were offered at no cost. They provided context for the different exhib...  more »

  • Stedelijk is Amsterdam's modern art museum. The content is rich and eclectic. Coded Nature by Studio Drift alone is worth the admission. I look forward to visiting again - when I make a another visit to Amsterdam this museum is one that's well worth a second look.
  • Surprisingly good. I really enjoyed this gallery. There are many interesting and thought-provoking exhibits. I would recommend paying a visit, especially if you have the `iamsterdam` card. While we were there there was a live dance performance, which we enjoyed.
  • First time visitor so spent a goid half a day here. The Drift exhibition if you get a chance to see it is breathtaking. A moving, beautiful blend of nature and technology. Add in a potted history if modern European art and a half day is just about enough. The negatives are minor...the in house cafe areas are a bit pricey and the audio tour was patchy at best and didn't really add much to the exhibits. If you want to do the cultural side of Amsterdam this is highly recommended as a goid place to start. Get there early though to avoid the crowds.
  • Fun contemporary and modern art museum! They have lots of pieces from many different famous artist. My favorite part is the art after the 2000s which is displayed when you first walk in and go straight ahead. They accurately with good detail give backgrounds non the artist too. Cute cafe and a nice gift shop. I also appreciate how they will hold your luggage if you happen to have that with you
  • You really have to like modern art to enjoy this place. As a casual art fan this left a lot to be desired. I felt the exhibition on the 60s movement was lacking actual art. There were a lot of exibits with minimal stuff and lot and lots of explinations. The light installations were the best part.
