Rijksmuseum

  Museumplein/Jan Luijkenstraat 1 ,   Zuid          (+31) 206 74 70 47     more than a year ago
This colossal building occupies nearly an entire city block and is finally open to the public again after years of renovations. Upon entering you're confronted by an eclectic collection of all things Dutch including a 17th-century canon, a massive model ship and Van der Helst's giant canvas Banquet in Celebration of the Treaty of Munster. View ancient weapons, gold and silver artefacts and of course an incredible collection of the nation's best old masters including Rembrandt, Vermeer, Bol and Steen. Scenes depict everything from biblical tales and windmilled landscapes to portraits and illustrations of 17th-century family life, not to mention exotic scenes from Holland's far flung Golden Age colonies. Some of the museum's most famous paintings like Rembrandt's The Jewish Bride and The Night Watch are also described in detail in laminated information cards, so you can take your time and discover interesting facts about each of these canvases. Queues can be long at peek times, mostly due to security checks, so plan accordingly.
