RijksData: always open! The Rijksmuseum links individuals with art and history. Our data services are important building blocks for this. That is why we offer them in different ways, guided by the Rijksmuseum’s progressive Open Data policy and inspired by the FAIR data principles.
Our curators, registrars, librarians, conservators, information specialists and data managers collaboratively make available a wide range of data on the Rijksmuseum collection and its context. Reusable by everyone and growing every day.
The Rijksmuseum offers different ways of accessing the collection data, such as downloads and APIs. These technical specifications provide an overview of available data sources and describe how different data services can be used.
Our collection is for everyone. That’s why the Rijksmuseum makes its digitised collections and metadata available in the highest quality. And we don’t ask for anything in return.
