An Amsterdam classic, it is definitely worth all the hype. The museum is so large you can often be distant from the crowds, but beware when you arrive at the famous paintings (i.e. The Night Watch), the crowds will be there.

The Rijksmuseum depicts Amsterdam's history. I spent at least 2 hours there and it was worth every penny. From paintings to statues to items used at that time. BIG tip: i purchased the ticket online and i got in under 5 minutes.

Great places to see the masters at work during the Dutch Golden age. Lots of Rembrandt pieces including the famous Nightwatch as well as other artwork from across the globe.

I spent 5 hours in the museum without realizing. The art housed there was diverse across mediums and methods. What struck me was how vivid all the colours were, so well preserved. The personnel their were all helpful, polite and courteous. I enjoyed it.

The highlight is the Grand Gallery. Probably the best place in the world to see the Dutch masters. The post-1900s collection isn't worth your time. The Asian collection has a few special pieces that make it worth a visit. Be sure to buy tickets in advance to avoid the ticket line.

Great experience, saw many classic and plenty of famous works in well-maintained galleries. Nice shop. Be there at 9 am to avoid the 2 queues (one to get inside, the other to purchase tickets once you're inside). Tip: buy tickets online, they'll work on any day

Number one national museum in Amsterdam. Very popular and if you want to save waiting time, go to the special ticket pick-up point at Blue Boat.

Rijksmuseum definitely has a lot of variety to try to capture a wider audience, but I felt a little overwhelmed wandering around so many exhibitions that I wasn't interested in.

There was a huge china, armor, weapons, instrument, religious, architecture, etc.

I remember walking around the masters and not feeling very captivated. But no doubt, this is a great museum to visit if you are into history.

The Rijksmuseum (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈrɛiksmyˌzeːjɵm]; English: Imperial Museum) is a Dutch national museum dedicated to arts and history in Amsterdam. The museum is located at the Museum Square in the borough Amsterdam South, close to the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and the Concertgebouw.

The Rijksmuseum was founded in The Hague in 1800 and moved to Amsterdam in 1808, where it was first located in the Royal Palace and later in the Trippenhuis. The current main building was designed by Pierre Cuypers and first opened its doors in 1885.[3] On 13 April 2013, after a ten-year renovation which cost € 375 million, the main building was reopened by Queen Beatrix. In 2013 and 2014, it was the most visited museum in the Netherlands with record numbers of 2.2 million and 2.45 million visitors.[5][13] Is is also the largest art museum in the country.

The museum has on display 8,000 objects of art and history, from their total collection of 1 million objects from the years 1200–2000, among which are some masterpieces by Rembrandt, Frans Hals, and Johannes Vermeer. The museum also has a small Asian collection which is on display in the Asian pavilion.

The Rijksmuseum (the Dutch National Museum) takes your breath away, you can lose yourself in over 4 levels of Rembrandt’s, Vermeers, van Gogh, the Dutch Golden Age, Delftwear and much more. So put aside a few hours to explore this museum. TIP, at this moment are special expositions the first expo around 500 years Fashion called: “CatWalk” And the second expo, Girl in Kimono, about the works of a prominte Amsterdam painter George H. Breiner. A must to see!

Put aside a few hours for this beast. The newly renovated Rijks looks like a dramatic castle standing proudly over the Museum Quarter - it takes your breath away before even going inside. For about 17 euro you can lose yourself in over four levels of Rembrandt’s, delftwear masterpieces, Golden Age classics, Van Gogh, Vermeers (The Kitchen Maid is my favourite) and stacks more. The restaurant in the atrium of the museum is actually very reasonable and serves up traditional Dutch bites and yummy hot chocolate in a sun drenched atmosphere.
