Holland’s version of the Louvre is essential when visiting Amsterdam, and this small group or privately guided tour of the Rijksmuseum will introduce visitors to the seemingly endless collection that curates Dutch history over the centuries. This 2 to 2.5 hour museum tour allows you to visit with a dashing young guide who will lead you through the museum. Your guide will provide tickets that are valid the whole day so that you can return at your leisure.
For those who aren’t familiar with Dutch culture – and who is really? – you will explore its rich and vibrant past through a selection of works from among the 8000 objects on display. 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.
