Depends on variables such as day of the week, whether or not you have a prepaid ticket/pass, time of day, and your level of interest.

I have not been to the newly remodeled Rijks (pictures are beautiful) but if you provide details those that have will give you a good idea.

I think you can also go into the garden of the Rijksmuseum but I assume it's small. I would set aside about 2-3 hours for the museum (without queuing). Depends on how thorough you are. Some areas are very specifics, for example ships or dollhouses so you might not spend as long in each area.

Thanks guys, if you get tickets in advance, I assume from their web page, does that help to skip some of the queue? We will be visiting in early August, after breakfast.....

You still have to queue to get in inside the ticketing hall but then you can skip the rest of the queue.

Inside you still have to queue for the cloak room :-)
