Skip-the-Line Rijksmuseum & Van Gogh Museum Semi-Private Guided Tour

by Babylon Tours Duration 5h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is £150

Museum enthusiasts, listen up! This semi-private 5 hour tour includes two of Amsterdam’s most popular museums and is an ideal way to experience them both during a day of art and culture. Skip the line to enter both the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum in a group of no more than 8 guests.

To begin this tour we’ll explore the Rijksmuseum to indulge in some of Holland’s most celebrated artists, like Rembrandt, while learning about the country’s rich history through a collection of 8000 works. Our guides will share their favourite stories about the museum’s most prominent and even quirkiest pieces. We’ll discuss familiar names like Rembrandt as well as lesser known items like 17th century dollhouses. Understand the meaning behind Vermeer’s “The Milkmaid” and marvel at the expansive 19th century library. At the end of the tour, you’ll have a good overview of the museum’s collection and you may even know how to pronounce its name correctly.

You’ve probably heard about one of the world’s most famous painters, Vincent Van Gogh. After a break for lunch we’ll introduce you to the man behind the famous sunflowers and self-portraits on this intimate tour of the Van Gogh Museum. Learn about him through his iconic paintings of people eating potatoes and of his own bedroom, or maybe his “Wheat field with Crows” or “Yellow House.” You will visit the world’s largest collection
