Amsterdam: Rijksmuseum Entry Ticket

Amsterdam: Rijksmuseum Entry 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 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.

Overall rating

4.5
(27,588 reviews)

We had a super friendly humorous boat captain. The combination of audio facts and the captain's input made the canal cruise more interesting. The boat was clean and spacious. We got there earlier than our time slot but the Blue Boat Company were happy to switch our time to an earlier slot. The canals we cruised on had lots of interesting buildings along them and the views around were very scenic. All in all this canal cruise made my weekend trip to Amsterdam very memorable.

Captain Tim was fantastic! Very friendly and great local knowledge and insight into Amsterdam. He always had the answers! The boat cruise included great sites and snacks/drinks included were great. Would recommend a hat as we were fortunate with a very hot day. Overall would highly recommend this activity.

What a great way to experience the city! Captain Jack made the tour engaging and enjoyable. This came highly recommended to me and I would recommend to others.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun. A great way to explore the city!

Unfortunately, there is no food on board, so you should plan ahead.
