  • This was my third visit to Amsterdam, so I decided to skip the more crowded Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum this time. Hurray for an art gallery where you are not likely to have a selfie-taker push in front ...  more »

  • 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.
