Visit Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

Amsterdam can often be unfairly regarded as a centre of hedonism, but the home of Rembrandt is awash with fine art trinkets and the premium offerings are on display in the Rijksmuseum.


One of Europe’s best museums, the Rijksmuseum is dedicated to Holland’s rich arts and history and boasts an extensive collection spanning eight centuries, encompassing some of the most famous artworks of all time.

Situated in the heart of Amsterdam, in the famous Museumplein, the Rijksmuseum is housed in a beautiful period building constructed in 1885, and for lovers of arts culture and history, is a must explore when visiting the city!
