  • The paintings collection is quite impressive; also some of the sculptures and installations inside and outside the museum building are very worthy - and I was generally surprised by the size of the outdoors area (although it's a fairly large complex in general). The downside is crowds - it's surprisingly crowded, and its facilities are not up to demand: not enough lockers, lines to the toilets and cafes, full bike parking. It's not a major downside (especially if you arrive early), but might have been better.
  • One of the best collections that most tourist won't venture to see. Actually very easy to get to by train and bus from Amsterdam. Use a All Holland off peak pass available from the NS office at Amsterdam Centraal.
  • Gorgeous landscaping, and there are hidden artworks and sculptures all over the place. Their sculpture garden is perfect for photography lovers. They provide free bikes to bike around their enormous grounds, where you can find the hidden artworks, but also see wild life; we saw a deer and some baby boars. The museum was alright, but I would pay just for the biking and sculpture garden experiences
  • Excellent! There's no way to exaggerate the sublime setting of the museum, right in the middle of a national park! And then there's the huge sculpture garden full of wonderful pieces. They spare no effort to cater to all age groups, also for kids! The collection of paintings is really unique and worth the detour! The premises are clean, well kept, inviting and wheelchair accessible. The garden restaurant was good! I will return when possible!
  • I Loved the open air museum, it’s really worth it to spend some time around the park. The Van Gogh collection is also very impressive
