A journey of around 1½ hours takes you into the city of Amsterdam, to one of the world’s largest and most interesting art museums, the Rijksmuseum. Founded in 1800, the museum was closed between 2003 and 2013 during which it underwent a complete transformation of both the building and the presentation of its collection. The Rijksmuseum opened its doors again in April 2013, allowing visitors to once again view its unparalleled collection dedicated to history and the arts.
Upon arrival, you’ll be split into smaller groups and provided with headsets, before following your specialist guide as they lead you on a guided tour of the museum, pausing at some of the highlight collections. You’ll then have around one hour of free time to explore further.
Continue to the Art Quarter, for free time to purchase luncheon, before heading to the Rembrandt House Museum. For 20 years the Netherlands' greatest artist lived and worked in this impressive building in the heart of Amsterdam, which is now a museum. Lovingly restored to its former 17th century glory, the museum showcases furniture, art and objects from that time.
As you visit independently with the assistance of an audio guide, pass through the rooms where Rembrandt worked. The house boasts an almost complete collection of Rembrandt's etchings and stages inspiring exhibitions about Rembrandt, his predecessors, contemporaries and pupils.
