Book your entrance ticket ahead of time to save time. The Rijksmuseum is very popular and the line to get to the ticket office is very long. At least 1-hour wait!
Prior to your visit, download the Rijksmuseum mobile app on your smartphone. Once downloaded, choose your language of preference and select the tour that best interests you. In my case, I did the 45-minute museum highlights tour since I was a little short in time.
This mobile app walks you thru the building in order to get to the main hall where the highlights collection is situated.
Definitely worth the visit!
