Full description

Treat yourself to a wonderful day in one of Amsterdam’s grandest museums, the Rijksmuseum, located in the heart of the city. The Rijksmuseum's internationally revered collection features some of the nation’s most famous works, including historic art by Vermeer, Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Van Gogh, and others. Visitors can admire Rembrandt’s ‘The Night Watch’, which takes pride of place in a beautifully lit hall allowing visitors to enjoy every tiny detail.

Gaze also upon 'The Jewish Bride'. This last painting reduced Vincent van Gogh to tears who, upon visiting the Rijksmuseum shortly after it opened, wrote in a letter that he would gladly give up ten years of his life to sit in front of the painting for two weeks, eating only a stale crust of bread. Visitors can expect much more than just paintings by Dutch Masters from the Golden Age. The Rijksmuseum’s expansive, evocative collection also includes Delftware, sculptures, archaeological artifacts, clothing, Asian art, prints, items from Dutch maritime history, and many other culturally significant objects, all combining to vividly retell 800 years of Dutch history within a global context. And naturally, the collection isn't frozen in time – new items such as a Mondrian-inspired dress by Yves Saint Laurent dating from 1965 can also be seen. The largest research and restoration project ever for 'The Night Watch' has started. This is happening live in the museum and you can be part of it and support the project with a donation.

Moving from one room to the next was easy and it was not crowded during my visit at 10:20am. However, I noticed that there were an influx of children and other visitors when I was leaving the museum. I loved the art work and how organized the exhibition was to the public.

I was in Amsterdam in January. The Rijksmuseum entry was a little chaotic since you needed to buy tickets from a third party beforehand but once inside it was fantastic. I focused on the old masters. I love Vermeer and was able to get up close despite that being the most crowded part of the museum. The collection leading up to his paintings really gave an understanding of the art that created his work.

Amazing from the outside and all the way in. This is a museum you will need several days to cover. A must do if you are interested in art and want to learn about Rembrandt. The entire collection is overwhelming if you want to take it all in a single visit. Great value for money... if there is time for just one museum visit in Amsterdam - pick the Rijks.
