  • Love this museum. Great collection of few of the best Dutch painters. Corona proof. It was really quiet and I loved it! Good markings so you don't get lost and download the free app! Free audio guides/tours and a map. Ps. Only in Dutch.
  • Amazing museum with many floors of items to admire and observe. They have discounts for kids up to teens! Don’t miss the very bottom floors with models of old ships and knight armor! It literally takes the entire day if you want to see everything. But so worth it! Great activity on a rainy day!
