Spend a few hours or two days and it is worth any time you can spend there. Take a guide if you can,

Around a 3 hour visit, lots to see, not really a signed way around the museum, almost missed some bits. A little too much art for me.

My visit to Rijksmuseum was fantastic. I really enjoyed all of the different artists. The layout of the museum just flows making it easy to see many works in a reasonable amount of time. A big favorite for me was Vermeer's The Milkmaid.

Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part

5 euro and we found it very easy to use - although the same content is on the free app if you have a smart phone. Simple - and they explain how to use very well.

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
