It was a very informative walk through and we saw paintings that we never had seen before.
No wait on the huge line, I was in the museum in a couple of minutes.
I think I like my experience in Van Gogh museum more than Rijkmuseum. It has its own focus which we can easily follow and appreciate from start to the end.
At the end of visit, I spent quite a long time in souvenir shop. So many items that worth to buy!.
