  • Take an audio tour especially for 3 euro if you Babel in Boymans van Beumingen are going to see. Gives so much extra information. And that is compact enough not to get bored. The paintings are of course beautiful culminating and final piece the Tower of Babel by Pieter Bruegel (why do I speak that always off to Breugel?). Fascinating art.

  • This is a really cool museum. The building itself is quite beautiful and the architecture does make for a pleasant museum experience. The displays were interesting and at times interactive, but the main attraction, an exposition of the tower of Babel was mildly underwhelming. The museum as a whole deserves more than one visit and presents a wide array of artistic styles. It also has a nice café and a pleasant garden which must be particularly pleasant in the summer months.
  • This museum so diverse and large. It contain all eras of art. Medieval, modern.. Its well planned, so you can go by map where you can see which era of art you at now.. Salvador Dali, Rubens, Rembrandt, Rene Magrite all they are here. Very interesting.
  • Bruegel, Rembrandt, Rubens and other Dutch masters,- worth a visit. I paid 17 euro for ticket. But ones in few months , you have chance for open day without ticket. Somewhere at modern art , you can find place to lay down , on net, and watch movie , projected on ceiling. Movie is bad and not appropriate for underage children. Much better just to lay down without movie.
  • Nice, yet small museum. Would not miss if into design, modern art. Nice to see some of Dali's works here. The place also has a nice cafeteria, serving amazing cakes, vegetarian included, and the view towards the park and water is very relaxing. It was not very crowded when we visited, and no advance booking needed.
  • Contemporary and modern art here is great. The exhibitions change regularly and are usually of high quality. There's a wing focused on design and there's a really nice overview collection of mostly paintings starting from the 1600s or so 'till contemporary times. Love this museum! 😁
