We visited the Rijks last week on a four day trip to Amsterdam. It was terrific, filled with gems by Vermeer, Rembrant, Van Gogh, etc. Highly recommend first taking the 1 hour highlights tour and then exploring on your own. You cannot visit Amsterdam without...More

The museum is one the finest looks at Rembrandt's life and works. Well layed out with head phones to use to get a keener look at the artist's amazing talent. Also are several floors to explore several era's and many times of art to enjoy.

Great gallery with a fantastic Rembrandt collection as well as many other Dutch masters. Needs a good half day at least.

You can easily spend half a day in the Rijksmuseum and not see everything. It's absolutely full of history and culture. In particular I enjoyed the large Delftware pottery displays and the amazing gallery of paintings. The works by Vermeer, Steen, and Rembrandt were amazing,...More

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping

it is 3.5 or 4 kilometres...quite a long walk. But the tram would be maybe 10-15 minutes and an Uber even less

was there last week and a cab from the town centre to the Museum is around €15. The tram goes right to the Museum and is €3 each way. Worth a visit!
