Almost a week after visiting the beautifully designed Rijksmuseum and I still get chills thinking about some of the spectacularly displayed artworks from the masters. It was a dream to visit your museum and a dream to finally witness it too. A perfect end to our holiday in Amsterdam.
10/10, I highly recommend this museum to any lover of art or history.

I purchased tickets online before visiting the Rijksmuseum. Although I also downloaded the app, I forgot to bring my earphones and never got the feel for how the app worked. I was also tired as I visited the Rijksmuseum in the afternoon after visiting the Van Gogh. Information overload. Suggest giving each museum their own day. The museum is filled with amazing treasures and best viewed with some type of guide as there is so much to see.

A three hour visit only touches the surface of this fabulous museum but definitely necessary. Visit early, pre-purchase tickets, download app and take earphones.

We did the museum highlights tour which you have to book online, but it was well worth it. There are tons of other wonderful things to see however, we didn’t have time. The highlights covers the most famous of the paintings by Rembrandt , Jan Steen, Frans Hals and Van Gogh as well as beautiful stained glass windows of the great hall.
