One of Amsterdam's most impressive and popular museums, the Rijksmuseum boasts a diverse collection steeped in more than eight centuries of history – Dutch and international. Of course, visitors can expect to see works from all the Dutch Masters of the 17th century: Rembrandt, Vermeer and more – as well as other modern icons like Van Gogh.
No trip to Amsterdam is complete without a visit to the Rijksmuseum. Since it first opened its monumental doors over 200 years ago, the museum has been one of the country's centre points to learn and enjoy Dutch art and history from the Middle Ages and beyond. But it's not just Dutch collections on show: the Rijksmuseum also boasts an impressive collection of other European and Asian art.

Located on Museumplein (Museum Square), the Rijksmuseum is easily one of the city's grandest and most photogenic spots. And entry is free if you're an I amsterdam City Card holder!
