Bought tickets directly from Museum and had a time slot which allowed half an hour each way, quick queue. Well worth spending a few hours here as there's lots to see and so interesting. Loved the Waterloo painting and the Night Watchman. Surprised that masks weren't mandatory but did find Amsterdam lacked a lot in this respect and now we have to quarantine in UK. Got back just in time. Cafe was great with lovely coffee and a great choice, and good social distancing. Beautiful building, well displayed and lovely gardens but the chairs were really uncomfortable there.

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.

Overall it's a nice museum. I love the first floor where the romantic and impressionistic works can be seen. Although I don't enjoy the top floor as much, just as I think the building does not suite the artworks there, the night wait is able to compensate for that. What a beautiful hall, leading up towards the museum's trophy.

Amazing place. If you're on a trip to Amsterdam you have to go to this museum. We spent all the day in this area, and we enjoyed it so much. We wish we can go there in the future to spend more time looking at those pieces of art.

Such a fantastic place to visit. The building already is grand. If you want to see the master pieces, go now. Due to Covid19 you have them all for yourself. Normally the halls are so packed with people you have to stand in line to wait for your turn. Not now.... Watch alone in total awe 👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽
