Great works of Art and of course this is what we came for BUT it is so badly organised with having to keep joining the queue to have our ticket scanned everytime we wanted to go to the cafe etc. Findi... more »
在博物館區周圍，我找到了這家國家博物館。很容易找到，因為有一個巨大的牌子 - “我愛阿姆斯特丹” 。在進入博物館之前，記得在牌子拍照。一旦進入，我發現它是一個致力於荷蘭藝術和歷史的地方。這個地方太大了，所以我選擇看某些藝術品，例如倫勃朗。提示：在漫無目的地走動之前，不如做好計劃看徹底自己喜歡看的。 more »Around the museum, I found this country museum. It's easy to find because there's a huge brand-"I love Amsterdam." Remember to take a picture in the sign before you enter the museum. Once in, I found it to be a place dedicated to the art and history of Holland. This place is too big, so I chose to look at certain artifacts, such as London Brown. Tip: Before you go aimlessly, you might as well plan to see what you like to see thoroughly.
I liked this museum a lot. It has a big selection of art. The built itself is pretty awesome. Very well organized. Nice coffee and it is nice that pictures are allowed. I get why it's forbidden in other museums but it's cool to be able to have some memories .
One of the best art museums in the Netherlands. Beautiful building and nice layout. Great art collection. There is many paintings by Rembrandt, including his most famous Night Watch. It also has Vermeer's the Milkmaid, Woman Reading a Letter and Little Street. All the best ones are in the Gallery of Honor on the 2nd floor which makes a quick visit easier if you are short of time. Other collections are very nice too.
