The Rijksmuseum is the largest art museum in the Netherlands and boasts an impressive collection of world famous works by such masters as Vincent Van Gogh, Johannes Vermeer, Frans Hals and Rembrandt van Rijn. After an extensive 10-year renovation project, the Rijksmuseum was reinaugurated in 2013 by then-Queen Beatrix. The building is located in the heart of Amsterdam’s Museumplein, where you’ll also find the Stedelijk and the Van Gogh Museum, as well as the Royal Concertgebouw, which is often regarded as one of the best concert halls in the world.

The current building of the Rijksmuseum, designed by Dutch architect Pierre Cuypers, first opened its doors in 1885 and has been a national heritage site since 1970. The recent renovation project has followed in the footsteps of similar initiatives by world museums such as the Tate Modern in London and the Louvre in Paris, in terms of combining the old with the modern. The atrium features a high glass ceiling and spacious, contemporary architecture which blends uniquely with the traditional red-brick walls. The collection contains more than one million pieces and has about eight thousand paintings, sculptures and historical artifacts on display, spanning from the year 1200 to the present. Some of the most notable works include Rembrandt’s The Night Watch (1642), Vermeer’s The Milkmaid (1647) and one of Van Gogh’s untitled self-portraits (1887).
