Private Rijksmuseum Guided Tour

DESCRIPTION

During this 120-minute art tour, through the permanent collection in the Rijksmuseum, you will explore how the artists Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Frans Hals, captured the incredible expansion of the Dutch Golden Age. See the people, the objects, and the paintings that define this unprecedented era of Dutch history, and explore how the art reflects the changing values and beliefs of the republic. Experience some of the most famous and influential works of the 17th century up close, and find out the stories and scandals behind the masterpieces.

Places to see

Once inside the museum, you and your small group will explore the highlights of the Dutch Golden Age, exploring the art and objects that defined the new Dutch Republic. Be amazed by the illusionism of the still-life paintings and Vermeer’s interiors, be inspired by the scale of Rembrandt’s ‘The Nightwatch’, and see the dollshouse of every young child’s dreams. Along the way, your professional guide will explain the social and historical context that gave rise to one of the biggest middle class art markets the world had ever seen. After the tour, you are welcome to continue to explore the rest of some of the 8,000 works on display as your ticket is valid all day. Or maybe you want to relax in the cafe or the museum shop.
