This building has been substantially rebuilt. The building is great and the exhibits are amazing. They allow photos in most areas of the building. We purchased tickets on line to avoid the line ups that can be very long in the tourist season. Highly recommend.

A trip to Amsterdam has to include a visit to this museum; whether you're a museum-goer or not, this one is worth going to, over and over again. Viewing Rembrandt's The Night Watch, alone, is more than worth the cost of admission. But, there are...More

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

The museum is enormous. Decide what sections are most important to you and concentrate on those first. You might want to spread it out. It is overwhelming. Your ticket is good all day so you could go out for lunch or a walk... More
