    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 »

    Great museum focusing on modern and minimal art and design. If you don't feel like spending money / time on a museum, at least make sure to visit the shop, you can go back home with something worthy! :D

    Traveler's tip: this place is far less crowded than other art museums in the city. Step away from the Rembrandts! There's such a good collection of modern and comtemporary art, plus rooms full of modern precursors. Go and have a great time!

    Very slick museum with some impressive pieces. Can be done in 2 hours if you're quick. I appreciate that it doesn't feel the need to hold your hand, you can wander about at will.

    This was a nice pace to visit and was free entry with the i Amsterdam card but modern art isn't really for me. It is nice that a free audio tour is included.

    I wish I had more time to visit every installation inside The Stedelijk Museum. The museum staff I met treated the visitors in such a professional manner, the atmosphere is calm and there is a café located on the second floor. Best museum I had the chance to visit while in Amsterdam.
