  • I have always had a difficult relationship with the modern art. It can be wonderful, but 90% is just wasted on me. The stories and influences behind it are often far-fetched or trivial. This is also largely for the permanent collection of the Stedelijk. Enough masterpieces but few works where I what. The work of Rietveld, however I can appreciate it. It is the temporary exhibitions that a visit is very worth making. I was very fascinated by the "construction of the new man" about Soviet propaganda. The motivator of our visit, however, was the exhibition of photographer and documentary film making Ed van der Elsken. Beautiful striking photographs and videos with exciting explanation, of the free audio tour. Look so good which exhibitions there are in the city but at the time of this writing it is very worth it.

  • Exhibition works of van der Elsken. Well worth the effort. At the same time double feeling, having regard to its way of life and lifestyle. Movements of Tinguely. Well, actually, old junk that reciprocally incorporated to moving "nonsense" matter of taste. The increased entrance fee not worth it.

  • This is one of these places we like to spend our free time in. Very modern building looks like massive bathtub. If you like contemporary art and installation you will like the museum. It's very airy and very spacious. There is a souvenirs shop and modern restaurant with sits in and outside.
  • Always a good time here – I'd visit the city simply for this museum. It's so well laid out and perfectly dense in artworks. Make sure you bring student ID for a half price ticket; it doesn't have to be a Dutch ID either.
  • Holland's equivalent to the Tate Modern with the same fine balance of brilliance mixed with challenging bullshit. Way better than the Rijksmuseum which is a bit stuffy for those without some historical interest in Dutch masters. Some fine pieces and the design section was a really nice extra. Visit the cafe, one of the better examples of its type.
  • Excellent modern art museum. Permanent exhibitions are vast and of good quality plus they done smaller temporary shows. You can also access the shop from outside and they have good architecture / design and business books. Also good selection of small objects to purchase.
  • Fantastic collection. The current temporary exhibition showcasing work from The Amsterdam School was great. Architecturally it's definitely worth visiting. The newer building sits wonderfully against the old.
