What people are saying about Stedelijk Museum
Perhaps we got lucky and simply went when it was not busy, but we were there during the busiest time of year (early May). This is clearly the least popular museum out of the "big three" - the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk, and the Van Gogh Museum. There was no line and not really many people there. My family is very into modern art and the pieces there were quite meaningful to me! They do have a couple of Van Goghs, a Rothko, Picassos, and many other recognizable artists in their permanent collection. I found the current exhibits to be really excellent. The cafe is overpriced, but you expect that from any museum.
Overall, a very useful pass. The only drawback was the time it took to wait in the queue at Skiphol Airport at the Travel desk (20 mins)as we had a taxi waiting for us over the road at the Hilton Hotel, so this made me very tense. The pass was useful for the first 24hrs on the tram and, as we had a pass for 2 venues, we used it for the Rjiksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. We also got 10% off the entry into the Oudekerke, oldest church in Amsterdam. The best thing was we could go in the fast queues at the Art Galleries.
Stedelijk museum definitely deserves a visit. Less tourists here, a surprising collection of contemporary art and interesting exhibitions. The only down side was the resistance of the staff in accepting my mobile voucher even though on the website it was written I could go with it. Luckily a very friendly member of the staff helped me out and let me get in. All in all a very good experience!
Great collection of works on display; ranging from early seminal works to recent developments. Spent by 4 hours and could have happily been there longer but had tickets for another booking, my 11 year old daughter enjoyed the experience too, would recommend the audio tour for some helpful insights.
There was so much on display, 2-3 works by each painter. Not my favorite type, I prefer fewer painters more depth. But gave a taste of the many different movement in the 20th century in Continental Europe. I'm glad to have seen it.
