After 10 years of renovating the famous Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam will reopen!

The museum will be opened by our Queen Beatrix on Saturday the 13th of April! From 12:00 o’ clock midday to midnight, the entrance will be for free! The renovation has been finished and all pieces have been recollected in the completely new museum. The interior has been changed completely; old wall paintings are restored, paintings and pieces of history are moved, the facilities have been improved and even the garden has new plants. A tour through the museum takes you along the history of the Netherlands in the right order. The story of 800 years of Dutch culture from the Middle Ages to the present is being told by 8000 pieces of art. Only the famous ‘Nachtwacht’ by Rembrandt kept its’ original place on the walls.
