One of Amsterdam's most popular attractions - and certainly its most important art repository - the Rijksmuseum (National Museum) was founded in 1798 to house the country's huge collection of rare art and antiquities. The museum's impressive collection includes a million cultural artifacts dating from the 13th century to the modern day, among them more than 8,000 important paintings spread across 250 rooms of this sprawling building.
In addition to its paintings, the Rijksmuseum boasts a well-stocked library of more than 35,000 books and manuscripts, as well as numerous fascinating displays dealing with the development of art and culture in the Netherlands. Of special note are its collections of traditional handicrafts, medieval sculpture, and modern art styles.
A variety of themed English language guided tours are available. For a special experience, try the fun art history canal cruise taking in many of the sites represented in the Rijksmuseum's collections, or book a table at the museum's Michelin-starred restaurant. Guided tours are available, and to avoid line-ups (nearly 2.5 million people visit each year), book tour tickets in advance online.
Address: Museumstraat 1, 1071 XX Amsterdam
You can't beat Amsterdam's pretty canals and stunning architecture. You can find everything from delicious food to fun bars and plenty of cute shops. We loved exploring the creative little streets and couldn't get enough of the traditional pancakes. Vondelpark is perfect for bike riding and there's a cute playground for kids right beside a relaxing cafe. Rijksmuseum was also nearby where the kids admired architecture and fine art and we saw a slice of history at Anne Frank's House. There's everything from fine dining to warming comfort food on every corner and nothing beats a glass of wine beside the canal on a sunny day. You won't take prettier photos than those in beautiful Amsterdam.
Had a wonderful time in Amsterdam, exploring the museums and sights. This is a great European city to see and the Ann Frank house was a particular highlight and so was the Van Gogh museum. Would highly recommend booking flights through trip.com.
The National Museum and the Van Gogh Memorial recorded the masterpieces of masters such as Rembrandt~
Can't read art? It's a good idea to understand it from a business perspective:
Unless there is a unique style, such as the arrival of aliens (Picasso, Dali), there are not many current painters. Van Gogh tried a lot of styles (including Japanese ukiyo-e) in order to please the audience. Why is the same work well known behind him?
If you are an investor, you will also like this kind of life experience (a lifetime of art, even a bit of crazy), it is more out of print storytelling.
Then look at the masterpiece, that is, the big one in the pile of paper, the past few of which are naturally masterpieces, which is why you can't see the "sunflower" special (want to describe the good but not the mouth).
