  • Have gone here for free on Museum map at the entrance to guard Russian, tell me what and where to look. All the fun at the bottom. People almost gone, exhibits strange, but interesting. Making the Museum meets its nature. Enjoyed.

  • 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
  • It's modern art right? I don't get it and I did not feel comfortable or get interested in anything there. I do not even know a person to recommend these expositions to. The best thing was that my girlfriend was with me and both of us could laugh at it that we do not get The point of this.
  • Maybe I'm just going to be five-starring museums from this trip because I had such a great time. Who knows. Anyway, this museum was great, the gift shop was also really fun to browse around in. Are you reading this review because you thought you'd be able to just walk in to the Van Gogh museum? You can go to Stedelijk instead. It's good.
  • 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.
  • If you are into modern art, that's the place. Surprisingly doesn't seem to be popular, thus not too many people visiting. At first it wasn't obvious to me that the majority of the exhibition is in the basement, so I advise to get a map of the museum at the lobby.
