It’s an extremely huge and beautiful museum! There are so many rooms and pieces for you to admire - I think you’d need at least 3 hours here.

Absolutely beautiful museum that you can easily lose hours in. Worth getting the highlights guided audio tour (€5) so you get an extra dimension to the art.

Also best to get there before 11am or it gets super busy.

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.
