  • We were four hours in the Museum and found at least a wonderful paintings in each room. Many unknown for us Dutch of 19th century have impressed US particularly. Unfortunately, there are some beautiful images behind glass.

  • 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
  • One of the best museums in the Netherlands. It has an impressive collection of late 19th Century and early 20th Century Dutch painters, and a world-class collection of Chinese (and Delft) porcelain. The building itself is architecturally interesting, and reflects the early design philosophies of De Stijl movement.
  • Disappointing China Characters. No manual, bad placement of information, but beautiful objects. A missed opportunity.
