If you’re thinking of taking one of our cycling holidays which pass through Amsterdam next April, there’s an excellent chance learn a little more about the region with the reopening of the Rijksmuseum.
The museum has been closed for almost 10 years now, undergoing an extensive renovation, restoration and expansion to re-invent it as a centre of heritage for the Netherlands. The museum will chronicle the region’s history from the Middle Ages to the present day with a whole range of exhibitions and displays. Rembrandt’s most celebrated painting, The Night Watch, will also be returning to the museum, its former home.
The renewed building will also feature a wide range of new public facilities and revamped gardens. The museum has also set the target of being the first museum in the world to be open to the public 365 days of the year, meaning that no matter when you visit, the doors will be open.
