On your Private Tour of the Rijksmuseum you will discover why the museum has been at the heart of Dutch culture for more than 200 years. As Amsterdam’s largest museum, it boasts more than 1-million artefacts that read like a priceless roll call of the glories of Dutch art history. Exhibits from the Dutch Golden Age (1620-1680) include some of Amsterdam’s grandest artworks, including the magnificent rich sombre hues of Rembrandt’s ‘The Night Watch’ and some exquisite paintings by the Dutch Masters, including Vermeer, Hals, Steen and de Hooch.
To spend time in the Rijksmuseum’s spacious daylight-flooded galleries is to connect with the greatest artistic narratives of eight centuries. Past exhibits have included a full retrospective of Hercules Segers, one of the 17th century’s most mysterious and experimental Dutch artists. Also his contemporary Frans Post, who produced some richly-detailed paintings of the New World’s exotic landscapes, flora and fauna. On thisPrivate Tour of the Rijksmuseum, immerse yourself in the highly-prized collections that take centre stage in 100 rooms and galleries. Celebrated grand masters are displayed at intervals with contemporaneous suits of armor, Delft ceramics, textiles, silver-work and models - a dynamic art mix designed to stir the senses. In a collection that is never static you will discover new acquisitions, showcases of exciting art talent and works on loan that range from the Middle Ages to Mondrian.
