  • If you admirer of art then this one is a good option to visit. You can start with the top floor. Place is provided to keep your belongings. For better understanding, you may take audio guide. This place is near to Heineken Experience Center so you can club it. Minimum 2 hours to entire day require based on your interest to see the museum.
  • I wish I had more time to explore but was not disappointed. Seeing Rembrandt's masterwork was simply awe inspiring. The museum is well laid out, and frankly, massive. Be sure you have a few hours to dedicate to your visit, you don't want to miss anything.
