A must-see if you’re in Amsterdam. Although there can be a big queue, it moves rather quickly. It is a lovely museum with a very large collection of interesting objects and paintings. I guess one of the best collections in the world!

Een belevenis. Het museum telt zo veel objecten dat je er wel even zoet bent. Enige nadeel is dat het er erg druk is en daardoor de wachttijden bij de toilet, de garderobe en het restaurant erg lang zijn.

The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is very impressive. It’s very huge so you’re going to need some time to view it properly. If you’re not interested in art, history or art history, don’t bother going. If those topics do interest you, you should definitely visit the Rijks!

Het Rijksmuseum te Amsterdam is het mooiste museum van Nederland. Daar is geen twijfel over mogelijk. Na de verbouwing is het nog fantastischer geworden en hierdoor nog meer een must-see! Een collectie die alleen maar hoogtepunten lijkt te hebben, maar als extra hoogtepunt de eregallerij heeft, met schilderijen van onder andere Rembrandt en Vermeer. Voor iedereen een must-see!
