  • Today we took tram 5 to the 700 exhibition highlights. The museum is as known to the Rijks and Van Gogh to the Museum square. After entry (evt coffee in the restaurant next door €2.95) you can get rid of your jacket (free) and buy a ticket €17.50 or free with the museum map. So we went to the 700 highlights. That fell not against us. Free device with explanation there (fine explanation: not too long!). It starts with the well-known work of impressionists Cezanne and Van Gogh; After that, among other things, Malevich, Mondrian, Rietveld and cronies, which Amsterdam school, Apple, Picasso, Bekman. Then fun and less fun art from bv the 60-ies (including nice video of vd Elsken), Duchamp, Keith Haring, Warhol, Jeff Koons was also still present. Also work we found mess, excuse: less appreciated. Yet also very nice surprises. All in all, we found money attractive. Though a bit messy presented, near bv Duchamp. We are a bit further by the museum erred, but in some modern art you must first take a whole story to you would you like to appreciate it. And there I don't like. But this exhibition is a must as far as I'm concerned.

  • The new structure of the Stedelijk Museum is set up so that you can get lost between the art. I was there already? And that space? You do not know more and it does not. Just enjoy. The highlights however neatly hang together in one room, nice and easy for the people who especially for this.

  • Once again a museum visited for a long time. The collection of the stedelijk is surprising. Always worth a visit, other kinds of art to admire. Price of the ticket of €17.50 related to the number of m2 viewing is on the high side.

  • This place wasn't my cup of tea, although to be fair, I think that's more of a me thing and not a museum thing as I realized I'm just not as in to this type of art. That said, there were some really cool parts of the museum (I really enjoyed the exhibits on the textiles and migration). Entire upper floor was closed while they set up for a new exhibit, which made me seriously regret paying a full price ticket for half of a museum. Wish there had been a heads up on that, but oh well. The part I loved the most was the giant drawing on the big staircase. It's a drawing of the museum itself with commentary interspersed and is easy to walk past, so make sure you take time to look at it too!
  • I'm not an art person or a fan of art thing, yet Stedelijk impressed me so much. It's amazing how they arrange all arts in an interactive way. There is a free audio guide which can tour your throughout the museum. Please do spare at least 1.5 hours. You would definitely enjoy the art consumption like me. Five stars, definitely!!!
  • Beautiful collection of 20th century art, some thought provoking contemporary pieces and a lovely building. Plus, you certainly need to come here to store your bag if you're going to the Van Gogh museum next door! Just watch out that this one opens at 10 Nd the other at 9am. Would it five star if it weren't for that I found no art collections in the Second floor, all expositions were closed when I went.
  • Great De Stijl collection and modern art from 1900s. Old and new building is stunning. Cafe is good but the guy who runs it is not so nice.
  • While modern art may not suite all tastes, I would still highly recommend the Stedelijk. This museum has a beautiful layout of great works of art in the modern era plus featured exhibitions from renowned artists. Plan your visit in advance. It is not as busy as the Van Gogh but you still need to plan your trip. Prepare a couple of Euro coins to store your personal belongings before entering into the Stedelijk. Enjoy.
