Amsterdam’s beloved Rijksmuseum is the Netherlands’ largest art museum. An essential part of any tourist’s trip, the museum boasts over a million pieces of art in what is truly a huge collection. Ten years of intense renovations were completed in 2013 when the building was re-inaugurated. The Rijksmuseum’s style now combines traditional and modern elements, as do other famous art museums, such as the Louvre in Paris. Located in Amsterdam’s Museumplein, the Rijksmuseum is close to other highly regarded museums, like the Stedelijk Museum and Van Gogh Museum, and the city’s stunning concert hall, the Royal Concertgebouw. Explore this incredible art museum for yourself!
The Rijksmuseum’s unique design was drawn up by the Dutch architect Pierre Cuypers; first opened in 1885, it became a World Heritage Site in 1970. With big names inside like Rembrandt Van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer, and Frans Hals, the Rijksmuseum has dozens of classic 17th-century Dutch masterpieces in its collection, including iconic paintings like The Milkmaid! It also features pieces by countless other Dutch artists, spanning over five centuries. Especially breathtaking are the self-portraits of artists like Vincent Van Gogh.
