Rijksmuseum, or the State Museum, is considered a true national treasure. Its exhibits include paintings from The Netherlands' 17th-century Golden Age by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals and Jan Steen. Rembrandt's Night Watch is the museum's centerpiece. You'll also find works from the Middle Ages and the 18th and 19th Centuries, superb collections of silver and delftware ceramics, old doll's houses and fantastic examples of Asian Art. Check website for open hours and admission prices that vary for various collections in the museum.
all the old Dutch works, the way it is layed out, the building on the ouside, a must while in Amsterdam...plan on spending a good afternoon here, and the Rembrandt selection's? If u have never seen a Rembrandt up close...
Only 14 out of about 140 rooms are open during this renovation that is expected to last for several years. While the paintings they have are wonderful, we were disappointed because we are used to seeing the entire collection.

What a wonderdul art museum. It's in the top 10 of Europe. The Rijks is under construction for quite some time so the masters were moved into the Phillips wing and it's just a small group representing the collection. It still took a little over 2 hours and that included the decent audioguide. The value is a bit less since you don't have access to the rest of the collection and the main building. Don't let that stop you from going to this museum. It's in the top 3 attractions of Amsterdam. Everyone seemed to linger in front of the Nightwatch for 20-30 minutes. Every time I am in Amsterdam I always go back. It is easy access from several trams.
This is a must see stop in Amsterdam. We have been in this great city several times and we always go back. No matter how many times you go you gain a new appreciation of the artist. The figures appear they are able to walk right out of the paintings. The museum is worth your time and $$'s.
Rijksmuseum was the most beautiful museum I've ever seen. I liked the track of time when I moved from one composition to another, and the changes throughout the times visible in different schools, etc. I was like tour through the history of the Netherlands... I would recommend it to all who are interested in arts and history, and to those who want to understand fundamentals of Dutch culture and nature. Though the disadvantage of this museum is that it is too large to see it all in one day or in one visit.
