  • The file that I could see in the Museum Square, I felt that you were a bit snubbed. Instead it is definitely worth a visit! Not only for lovers of modern art, but also for the skeptics who call this kind of art: the free guide (in English) explaining the main works, and what looks like just a white stripe on a blue canvas shop a profound meaning. Also if you have the University card you are entitled to a discount!

  • Urban is always nice to be. One topic speaks to more than the other. With a good guide I find that almost less relevant because I also very much teaching of art where I at first sight less. Meinke is such a good guide. She is hired by Audi but also works as a self-employed person. A must!

  • This museum is really nice, already very special being half old and modern. Fixed exhibition offers a lot of paintings by Mondriaan Cezanne Malevich and other minor artists. The upstairs instead only hosts temporary exhibitions, which give way to contemporary artists. Really super recommended, moreover it also costs much less than other museums!

  • 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.
