Ever wanted to see a real Vermeer or Rembrandt in person? The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam has both the paintings and the collection of historic artefacts to connect them to Dutch history and beyond, going one step further to not only show you these masterpieces, but also provide a historical context, adding great depth to these works. And if the Netherlands isn’t your cup of tea, the collection also contains ornate delftware and Asian prints to tickle your fancy. Spend a day wandering the halls of the museum, take a guided tour, or rent an audio tour of this two-storey building that houses so many treasures and history.
- Guide yourself around the Rijksmuseum with a rented audio tour of a specific art theme, such as “Masterpieces” or “Food and Drink in the Golden Age”.
- Find a wonderful gift or souvenir for friends back home or a trinket of Amsterdam for yourself at the Rijksmuseum shop.
- Delve deeper into the history of the art housed at the museum at the Rijksmuseum Research library, the largest art history research libraries in the country.
Amsterdam is a people-friendly city. Once you arrive by train or plane, it is easy to get around and to find your way to the Rijksmuseum. You can get to the museum in any number of ways: the tram from Central Station to Hobbesmastraat, from Sloterdijk station to Concertdebouw. For a unique way to get to the Rijksmuseum, take the Canal Bus to arrive in style by water. If you drive, you will want to take the Amsterdam ring-road (Exit S108-Amstelveen), but paid parking is limited; the entrance is opposite the Concertgebouw and under the Museumplein.
