National treasures

The collection includes world-renowned works such as Rembrandt's 'The Night Watch ' (now visible in a beautifully lit hall where visitors can see every little detail) and paintings by Johannes Vermeer and Frans Hals. In addition, the museum manages a collection of Delftware, sculptures, Asian art, prints and other important art objects.

Lively history

The Rijksmuseum's collection goes further than the Dutch masters. The rich cultural history of the Netherlands comes to life with objects such as ship models, sculptures, archaeological finds, clothing, weapons, prints, photos and more. In addition, thousands of historical objects portray the history of our country in a worldwide context and tell the story of 800 years of Amsterdam, from the Middle Ages to the present day.

In addition to masterpieces from the Golden Age, there are, for example, Delft blue dishes, sculptures, Asian art, etchings and objects related to Dutch maritime history. There are also modern additions, such as a Mondrian-inspired dress from 1965 designed by Yves Saint Laurent.

Rijksmuseum programming

In addition to the paintings, art and the building, the museum also has a newly designed garden since 2013: the ideal place to relax amidst the beautiful surroundings. The museum also regularly organizes guided tours, lectures and other events - check out the Rijksmuseum website for more information.
