The biggest art museum of Amsterdam. Recently totally renovated.
The Rijksmuseum is the iconic museum of the Netherlands. After
ten years of rebuilding, refurbishing and renovating, the
Rijksmuseum once again opened its doors to the public in full
splendour on 13 April 2013. Both the building and the presentation
of the collection underwent a total transformation. This revamping
resulted in surprising furnishings, beautiful exhibitions, dazzling
events and numerous facilities for young and old.
The Rijksmuseum’s world-famous collection is being presented in
an entirely new way. Visitors go on a journey through the ages and
experience a sense of beauty and of time. In 80 galleries, 8,000
objects tell the story of 800 years of Dutch art and history, from the
Middle Ages to Mondrian.
