Description

Immerse yourself in the art and history of the Netherlands on this in-depth, guided tour of Amsterdam's world-renowned Rijksmuseum. Admire masterpieces from the 13th to the 21st century as an art historian provides insightful commentary on the lives and works of the Dutch masters.

Located at Museumplein – the central city square that houses the iconic “I Amsterdam” letters – the Rijksmuseum recently underwent an extensive refurbishment to create a grand, modern and cohesive space worthy of displaying the museum's 8,000-piece collection. Your tour begins with a discussion of the building itself, and how the renovation work both brought the space into contemporary times and drew it back to its 19th-century roots.

Step into the museum's stately entrance and head to the central room, which is dedicated to Rembrandt's Night Watch – this massive work is the best-known painting in the museum, and is remarkable for its use of light and shadow. Delve into the history of the Dutch Golden Age as you analyse the details and meaning of this famous work.

Follow your guide as you're led through the museum to see fantastic works by Dutch masters like Vermeer, Van Dyck and Jan Steen, as well as important pieces by lesser-known painters. Admire a collection of antiques and artefacts, and listen as your guide discusses Holland in the 17th century. You're sure to leave with a richer understanding of the impact of the Dutch on the art movements of the centuries that followed their Golden Age.
