  • I wouldn't normally dare take my young boys to an art museum but I thought that it would be nice to visit something for me on holidays, for a change! The museum is a great size, you could spend all da...  more »
  • The Museum is located next to a park that allows a walk with beautiful views of the landscape. Museum organized with restaurant, and shop for purchases. The view, spacious lounges, offers a path that starts from the European and Dutch art of the Middle Ages until modern artists. Path to taste with calm. Nursing chairs are provided.

  • Always worth a visit, but no real wow factor in terms of work shown. A lot of variety and fun for all ages. The museum consists of several floors. There is a lift available. (the trap is very beautiful) The walking route we found because of unclear passages here and there with a rope dropped off. The restaurant looked spacious and cozy. The toilets are divided over the building and sufficiently present.

  • Lovely museum with a great range of art from middle ages to the present. Interesting presentation moves non-linearly so you might see modern art in between older works. The coat check is also kind of cool
  • Nice hidden gem in Rotterdam. Museum with classic and modern art, we had the luck of visiting it with the order set by a new guest curator and he did a tremendous job! Will definitely come back. They offer a map guide with suggestions for short and long visits.
  • Great collection. I would say "thank you" for a chance to see Bosch and Bruegel pictures
  • For some unexpectedly a nice museum with a lot of temporary and modern art mixed with work of grandmasters (Rubens, Mondriaan, Rothko, Rembrandt).
  • Well curated mix of contemporary and fine art. I enjoy the atmosphere and love the building building itself, with the modern extension as well.
