The Rijksmuseum has a new map! The Cuypers Route. With this map you’ll experience the building as art.
Designed by Pierre Cuypers (1827-1921), the Rijksmuseum building is well worth a visit in its own right. Architect Cuypers’ aim was to turn it into a total experience: a museum in which to view works of art, which is itself a work of art. The Cuypers Tour takes you on a journey where you can see the architecture and decorations to their best effect. Follow the 18 signs devoted to the Cuypers Tour!
The tour was made possible with support from Familie Staal Fonds / Rijksmuseum Fonds
