  • Get up close to 8,000 objects across 80 galleries, including renowned Dutch masterpieces like The Night Watch by Rembrandt and The Milkmaid by Vermeer
  • One of the most visited museums in the Netherlands, the Rijksmuseum can have lengthy ticket lines – luckily our handy Rijksmuseum tickets get you in via the Fast Lane!
  • It's not just paintings – the museum also has sculptures, an exhibition of clothing and weapons, and one of the finest libraries you'll ever see

The Rijksmuseum has some of the world's most famous paintings (including Rembrandt's Night Watch), with an emphasis on the Dutch Golden Age. Its collection spans over 800 years of art history in a beautifully restored building. Located smack-dab in the heart of Amsterdam's Museumplein, the Rijks is an Amsterdam must-see.

The national museum of the Netherlands underwent a ten-year renovation between 2003 and 2013. It's come out looking great – airy, bright and inviting. Plus, it's filled with more paintings and objets d'art than you can possibly absorb in an afternoon's ramble. Still, it's fun to give it a try.

The highlight is Rembrandt's Night Watch, one of the museum's most famous (and largest!) paintings. Vermeer's The Milkmaid is another classic to be viewed here, and there are many other lesser-known, but equally intriguing works of art that provide a window into life in another time.

Another spectacular – though underrated – section of the museum is the collection of weapons and ship models, with its exotic, ornate and even combat-used weapons.

The Rijksmuseum also offers an excellent multimedia tour app that can be downloaded straight to your smartphone. Check it out on the App Store or Google Play!

Insider tip

RIJKS®, this busy museum's Michelin-starred restaurant, is one of the best in the city. It's open for lunch and dinner and, if the weather cooperates, the terrace is a lovely place to eat and relax.
