  • The paintings collection is quite impressive; also some of the sculptures and installations inside and outside the museum building are very worthy - and I was generally surprised by the size of the outdoors area (although it's a fairly large complex in general). The downside is crowds - it's surprisingly crowded, and its facilities are not up to demand: not enough lockers, lines to the toilets and cafes, full bike parking. It's not a major downside (especially if you arrive early), but might have been better.
  • One of the best collections that most tourist won't venture to see. Actually very easy to get to by train and bus from Amsterdam. Use a All Holland off peak pass available from the NS office at Amsterdam Centraal.
