Excellent museum” Jun 06, 2012
It one of the best Attraction in Amsterdam.

the location in Jan Luijkenstraat 1, Amsterdam 1070 it

was near my hotel 2 minute walking.

Great museum to get a feel for the great Dutch painters.

I like many paints but the Masterpieces in my opinion are

Girl with a Large Hat, The musketeer & the maid.

The Rijksmuseum van Oudheden (English: National Museum of Antiquities) is the national archaeological museum of the Netherlands. It is located in Leiden. The Museum grew out of the collection of Leiden University and still closely co-operates with its Faculty of Archaeology. The museum calls itself the national center for archaeology, and focuses on ancient Egypt, the ancient Near East, the classical world of Greece, Etruria and Rome and the early (prehistoric, Roman and Medieval) Netherlands.

One of "must see" Apr 29, 2011
Besides Mauritshuis in the Hague, this is another "must-see" in Netherlands if you are into art.

Their exhibits are mainly the works from 17th Century in Netherlands such as "a woman pouring milk" by Vermer, "the Night Watch" by Rembrandt.

The entrance fee is 12.5 Euros but free if you have museumkaart. (It's really a must-have if you visit so many museums in Netherlands. It costs about 38Euros and validity is 1 year. totally worth it!)

And also, the collection of doll houses and delftware potteries are other must-sees.

You can see the life of the people in 17th century by dollhouse furnished with tiny delftware.

And also, Delftware pottery was really interesting, they imitated the pottery from China and most of the works were quite oriental, (very primitive though).

This museum is located next to Van Gogh museum, and I really recommend you to visit this museum if you are visiting Van Gogh museum as well. (If you have museumkart, entrance of Van Gogh museum is also free.)

Great collection of art Sep 27, 2010
The Rijksmuseum houses some of the finest collections or art and crafts from the Dutch golden age.

The collections of Rembrandt and Vermeer are impressive. With some of the paintings, they helpfully have these information cards to read. They highlight specific sections of the painting and tell you a little bit more about it.

Apart from the paintings, the museum has some very impressive pieces from Asia. It also has these dollhouses from the Dutch golden age. Wealthy families had these crafted and made to look like replicas of their house. It sounds like a fancy child’s toy these days but make no mistake, these are very impressive pieces.

The museum is a tad expensive and it’s a pity that no photography is allowed. Nonetheless, it’s a very impressive collection and worth visiting.

Very much worth a visit Feb 28, 2008
The Rijksmuseum has specialised on Paintings, Skulptures and other Art from the Netherlands "Golden Age", meaning a lot of Delft Porcelain, Silverware, Rembrandt, Vermeer and other painters from that time.

They have a lot of variety and I found it to be sorted in a way that it does not really get boring. Besides quite a number of the paintings are amazing, more realistic than photography.

I was especially taken with the model-ship placed close to the entry, which is really detailed and with the Dollhouses by Petronella Oortman. I could look at these two for hours, because they are so precise and detailed.

The information in the Museum about the Objects is sufficient, without having to read too much.

For visiting this Museum, at least two-three hours should be scheduled.

I think it doesn't even take that much of an inclination for art or history to enjoy this museum, but if you are only in Amsterdam for coffeeshops and the redlight-district, this might not be for you.

Rijksmuseum May 16, 2008
Rijksmuseum is the national museum of the Netherlands. I've visited quite a few times. It's a nice museum with masterpieces from famous Dutch artists such as Rembrandt, de Hooch, and Vermeer. The most well known in the museum is Rembrandt's Nightwatch, though my favorites were De Hooch's paintings. The museum is not all paintings. It also includes a large collection of crafts such as delftware, a popular pottery made in the Netherlands and impressive dollhouses from the 1600s! Unfortunately 3/4th of the museum is closed temporarily, but there's still a lot to take in.
