The Rijksmuseum is one of the largest and most popular museums in Amsterdam. People from all around the world visit the museum to admire the large collection of iconic works. The Milkmaid by Johannes Vermeer, Portrait of a Couple by Frans Hals, and the most famous of them all, The Night Watch by Rembrandt van Rijn. These are just a few of the paintings you can find in this museum, since the collection covers a time period of 800 years!
Not only the art inside the building is what makes this museum so impressive, yet the building is an artwork in itself. It was built by Pierre Cuypers and is an ode to the Dutch art history. On the facade, you will discover different scenes portraying famous artists or moments in art history. We would kindly suggest to discover the exterior, while sitting in the garden enjoying a nice cup of coffee!
