  • Despite its modest size, contains a number of very interesting work. On a negative note on the disposition of the salt, it looks like a maze and there is the risk of getting lost some artwork on display.

  • We enjoyed our visit but felt the display lacked coherence. And I would have appreciated longer labels by the exhibits.  more »
  • I love this museum. It ticks all my boxes. The exhibitions are of wonderful art, but with a theme. You are taken on a journey. The history of "De Stijl" and Chris Beekman was absolutely fascinating. I...  more »

  • This place wasn't my cup of tea, although to be fair, I think that's more of a me thing and not a museum thing as I realized I'm just not as in to this type of art. That said, there were some really cool parts of the museum (I really enjoyed the exhibits on the textiles and migration). Entire upper floor was closed while they set up for a new exhibit, which made me seriously regret paying a full price ticket for half of a museum. Wish there had been a heads up on that, but oh well. The part I loved the most was the giant drawing on the big staircase. It's a drawing of the museum itself with commentary interspersed and is easy to walk past, so make sure you take time to look at it too!
  • I'm not an art person or a fan of art thing, yet Stedelijk impressed me so much. It's amazing how they arrange all arts in an interactive way. There is a free audio guide which can tour your throughout the museum. Please do spare at least 1.5 hours. You would definitely enjoy the art consumption like me. Five stars, definitely!!!
  • Beautiful collection of 20th century art, some thought provoking contemporary pieces and a lovely building. Plus, you certainly need to come here to store your bag if you're going to the Van Gogh museum next door! Just watch out that this one opens at 10 Nd the other at 9am. Would it five star if it weren't for that I found no art collections in the Second floor, all expositions were closed when I went.
  • Great De Stijl collection and modern art from 1900s. Old and new building is stunning. Cafe is good but the guy who runs it is not so nice.
  • While modern art may not suite all tastes, I would still highly recommend the Stedelijk. This museum has a beautiful layout of great works of art in the modern era plus featured exhibitions from renowned artists. Plan your visit in advance. It is not as busy as the Van Gogh but you still need to plan your trip. Prepare a couple of Euro coins to store your personal belongings before entering into the Stedelijk. Enjoy.
