Museum with one of the finest art and design collections in the world. This museum does not just exhibit Dutch or Flemish art, but is internationally focused. It covers everything, from medieval paintings to very abstract, modern art. Recommended!

(Review in Dutch)

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is een veelzijdig museum met een schitterende collectie schilderijen die op een fijne manier zijn gerangschikt. Naast de enorme kunstcollectie is de architectuur ook zeker de moeite waard.
