Historical gem in the heart of Amsterdam

Considered as one of the most breathtaking museums in the world, the Rijksmuseum remains more than two hundred years. During this long period, the museum has gone through several renovations and transformations and after its latest renovation the museum has taken a complete new look in April 2013 which shouldn’t miss at all.

Designed by the famous architect P.J.H. Cuypers, the Rijksmuseum had started its journey in its new beautiful building in 1885 as the largest museum in Netherlands. The outstanding structure of the building in then designer Dutch neo-Renaissance style will certainly mesmerize you with its historical neo-Gothic elemental decoration and form.

When visiting the museum you should never miss the internationally recognized some of the most famous Dutch works such as historical art by Frans Hals, Vermeer and so on. The special attraction of the place is its notable Rembrandt’s ‘The Night Watch’ which has been beautifully preserved within its perfectly lit hall so that the visitors can enjoy every minute detail of this piece of work. Beyond the art, building’s architect, artifacts, you will definitely enjoy the mind-blowing landscape of its surrounding garden as an ideal place for sit and relax during your museum tour.
