Background Info Rijksmuseum
This attraction you should not miss during your trip to the Netherlands! The Rijksmuseum (English: The State Museum) exists for more than 200 years and today belongs to the most breathtaking museums in the world. Skip the line and indulge in a world of classic art. The Rijksmuseum was founded in The Hague in 1800 and moved to Amsterdam in 1808, where it was first located in the Royal Palace and later in the Trippenhuis.
The current main building was designed by Pierre Cuypers and first opened its doors in 1885. On 13 April 2013, after a ten-year renovation which cost €375 million, the main building was reopened by Queen Beatrix. In 2013 and 2014, it was the most visited museum in the Netherlands with record numbers of 2.2 million and 2.47 million visitors. It is also the largest art museum in the country.

Highlights & Tips Rijksmuseum
- 800 years of Dutch art & history, 8,000 objects and 80 galleries from the Dutch Golden Age (from the year 1200 right up to the present).
- Great highlights are the works from the Golden Age of Dutch art from around 1620 to 1680, and the collection of paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hals, Steen and de Hooch.
- This busy museum’s Michelin-starred restaurant RIJKS®, 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 & relax.
- Use the first floor as your reference point: it connects the four corners of the museum, and is the easiest way to move between the amazing collections.
- The building itself is absolutely gorgeous and is worth the trip alone. The Rijksmuseum underpass attracts regular street musicians due to its magical acoustics which makes an unforgettable entrance.
- Current Exhibition: Clara And Crawly Creatures. (untill the 15th january). The museum is teeming with animals this season! From Wriggly ants, hairy spiders and colourful butterflies in crawly creatures to Clara, the famous Rhinoceros. The more than 200 object on display reveal how artists and scientists have been fascinated by animals.

Spring & summer promises tend to be extremely busy. As well as the tourists, many Dutch people will doubtless want to (re-)discover their national museum. The quietest times (especially in the Gallery of Honour) are likely to be weekdays, first thing in the morning (from 9am), or for the last two hours of the day (3pm-5pm). Winter will obviously be a quieter time, too.
