  • The exhibitions in this museum are world class. Their curators chose the best works from all around the world. We most recently saw the Alice Neel exhibition, along with brilliant exhibitions on Delftware and Valentino clothing designs. Their collection of glassware from the 17th century is fascinating, too. This museum never disappoints me. It's a must see for all art lovers who visit The Hague. In fact, if you're visiting just Amsterdam, then a train ride to The Hague would be totally worth it. Make a day of it and see the Escher Museum and the Photography Museum there as well.
  • Maya (8 years old) just loved the free Sunday art room they have available. You can leave your kid there for an hour while you browse the museum. In the basement they have a really fun looking scavenger hunt sort of game for older kids, with tablets they loan to players.
  • Exquisite museum. The building itself os remarkable in itself. Very good collection of modern art and varying temporary exhibitions
  • This is well worth your time if you like Mondrian and his contemporaries. The highlight for me is the large collection of Lee Bonticou's work. She is an American artist with be beautiful pieces reflecting the natural world with mechanical influences. The building itself is a treat.
  • Best Mondriaan collection in the world chronologically displayed. Many other famous painters, collections and different museums (like museum for photography) in other buildings as well. The museum complex itself is a work of art made by famous dutch achitect H.P. Berlage
