|About these ratings|
Counted as one Amsterdam's top museums (along with the Van Gogh and Anne Frank museums), the Rijksmuseum (or State Museum) features an impressive collection of artists, including Rembrandt and Vermeer. As befits a State Museum, the ornate building contains mostly Dutch works from the 15th to 17th centuries. Recent renovations have restored the museum to its former glory, leaving many travelers impressed with both the refurbishment and the collections housed inside.
To visit, take Tram 2 or 5 to Hobbemastraat. You can visit the museum every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; tickets cost €15 EUR for adults (or about $20 USD), but 18-year-olds and younger can visit for free. For more information, visit the museum’s website.
