  • The museum is highly recommended, now with the temporary exhibition surrealism is still a must see!

  • A beautiful museum where we have many. More often because there are always other exhibits that challenge. Especially if you like modern art. The wardrobe is an art piece in itself. Enjoy to your jacket to hang

  • What I call a non-specific museum. It started as the private collection of a rich shipping tycoon, so there is not a lot focus. But still very well worth a visit.
  • This is one of the first contemporary art museums that I thoroughly enjoyed. Particularly the interactive exhibition by Olafur Eliasson mesmerised me. Well worth the money.
  • The curation is the best among all the museums I've been to. It carries a strong personal flavor and you can feel the genuine passion for the art works by the writer. This might be unwelcome among the more experienced art viewers, but for people without a very deep knowledge of art history the curation is invaluable in getting to know what's on display in a much more enjoyable fashion.
  • My favourite museum in Rotterdam. A really amazing collection of Dutch and international art. A good balance of Contemporary and more classical art. Great permanent collections and constantly new exhibitions. Can go back many many times.
  • This is a quite big museum, with lots of paintings (some of them really famous), and also some modern art. If you're into those things then you should definitely go.
