Description

The Rijksmuseum has over 5,000 paintings (including Rembrandt's Night Watch), and 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, the Rijksmuseum recently underwent a ten-year, €375 million renovation. 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.

There's a definite emphasis on the Dutch Golden Age - the 17th century period when Rembrandt, Vermeer and many other artists found fame, and occasionally fortune. The Rijksmuseum collection showcases art from 1200-2000.

The highlight is Rembrandt's Night Watch, also known by its much longer title Militia Company of District II under the Command of Captain Frans Banninck Cocq. Vermeer's The Milkmaid is another famous classic to be viewed here, but there are many other lesser-known, but equally intriguing works of art that provide a window into life in another time.

Another favorite - though under-rated section - is the weapons and ship models, with its exotic, ornate and even combat-used weapons.

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.

Not having to wait on line to buy tickets is wonderful. I got in early and spent 5 hours there. This museum has a lot to see so you need to allocate plenty of time.

Study your floor plan well. Signage throughout museum minimal. Especially trying to reach smaller galleries on first floor. Well worth the effort. Perseverance well rewarded!
