Rijksmuseum

The Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, is home to a large collection of art and history of the Netherlands. The museum has an famed collection of paintings from the seventeenth-century Dutch Republic, the Golden Age, works by Rembrandt, Vermeer and other paintings such as Frans Hals and Jan Steen. At the very heart of the museum is Rembrandtís "Night Watch".

The Rijksmuseum houses more than just paintings: there are collections of silver, delftware, dollís houses, prints, drawings, Asiatic art and Dutch history. Art on paper, prints and drawings, and the photographic collection, are shown four times a year in different exhibitions.

The Rijksmuseum is at one end of the Museumplein which is also bordered by the Van Gogh museum, the Stedlijk museum and the Concertgebouw. The Museumplein is a good place to take a break on a nice day. It's especially refreshing if you're attempting to do more than one museum in a day.


More Info: Open daily from 10 am to 5 pm. Closed on January 1.
Admission is 8.50 euros for adults.

My Score:
Ik kan me niet meer zo goed verplaatsen. Ergens las ik dat u over een schilderij beschikt van J.B. De Jonghe " Marktdag in Kortrijk" 1928. Kan ik er een kopij van ontvangen per mail uiteraard indien nodig tegen betaling. Of moest het schilderij ooit te koop aangeboden ben ik eventueel amateur/koper. Luc André Vandenbogaerde Kortrijk

My Score:
I loved the Rijksmuseum easily as much as Orsay-Paris, Louvre, Guggenheim-Venice, or any other museum in Europe. The things the Dutch Master artists (Rembrandt, Vermeer, et all) did with "light" and the amazing still lifes (HEDA, Willem Claesz etc. ) are beyond amazing and inspiring. Rijks is conveniently close to the Van Gogh museum and the beautiful Vondelpark, making it a wonderful 1, 2, or even 3-day excursion. Rijksmuseum has a wonderful web site in many languages at www.rijksmuseum.nl/ Enjoy, and be inspired.
