Amsterdam: Rijksmuseum Entrance Ticket

5. Amsterdam: Rijksmuseum Entrance Ticket

Treat yourself to a wonderful day in one of Amsterdam’s grandest museums, the Rijksmuseum, located in the heart of the city. The Rijksmuseum's internationally revered collection features some of the nation’s most famous works, including historic art by Vermeer, Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Van Gogh, and others. Visitors can admire Rembrandt’s ‘The Night Watch’, which takes pride of place in a beautifully lit hall allowing visitors to enjoy every tiny detail. Gaze also upon 'The Jewish Bride'. This last painting reduced Vincent van Gogh to tears who, upon visiting the Rijksmuseum shortly after it opened, wrote in a letter that he would gladly give up ten years of his life to sit in front of the painting for two weeks, eating only a stale crust of bread. Visitors can expect much more than just paintings by Dutch Masters from the Golden Age. The Rijksmuseum’s expansive, evocative collection also includes Delftware, sculptures, archaeological artifacts, clothing, Asian art, prints, items from Dutch maritime history, and many other culturally significant objects, all combining to vividly retell 800 years of Dutch history within a global context. And naturally, the collection isn't frozen in time – new items such as a Mondrian-inspired dress by Yves Saint Laurent dating from 1965 can also be seen. The largest research and restoration project ever for 'The Night Watch' has started. This is happening live in the museum and you can be part of it and support the project with a donation.

What people are saying about Amsterdam

We booked the tour as we missed out on getting tickets. However we absolutely loved it and was worth it. Melissa our guide was a wealth of information without it being too high brow. We learned loads and she was always on hand for local tips and recommendations. We got far more out of the museum than we would have ordinarily (as well as having a better time). Thanks Melissa!

This place was really fun. Every room is a new experience and the photo ops are endless! I felt as if I had stepped into a new world.

Efficient. Punctually to the minute. Very good travel conditions. Eva the guide, speaking in 3 languages, polite, patient, smiling.

Great fun for adults and kids. Silent disco, karaoke, ball pits, to name but a few things to do.

A lovely visit to the Royal Palace. Very interesting history and exhibits. A must for visitors.
