  • Much different to see everything from installations to ... the image and movie. A lot of that was really cool. Would recommend if you have a hint of interest in modern art.

  • 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
  • One of the best contemporary art museums in Europe. Great location. Recently they rearranged the base collection, now all pieces are in one large floor in a great showcase, ordered chronologically. The temporary exhibitions are almost all excellent quality. Highly recommended.
  • The Stedelijk is Amsterdam's premier modern art museum located on the Museumplein. It's definitely worth a visit if you like modern art - they have a wide range of exhibits using multiple mediums so I think there is something for everyone.
  • Modern and contemporary art like no other museum in Netherlands. A very old museum which once used to house Van Gogh's work. Contemporary art lovers will rejoice, the modern art lovers will be content, anyone else will glance through and move on.
  • You can't take pictures in the Van Gogh museum so it was worth it alone to come here for the paintings they have. I find modern art to mostly be very odd and this wasn't an exception. The layout had a good flow and there was a nice mix of mediums. Certainly not to be missed if only to compare to the other art museums within proximity.
