Our projects

The Rijksmuseum is supported by funds and (family) foundations for purchases, education, restoration and science.

Every child to see the Night Watch

Every child to see the Night Watch

This year the Rijksmuseum will received a sum of € 1.001.328 in earmarked donations over 2014, which will enable the continuation of the Rijksmuseum bus service. This contribution from the BankGiro Lottery will therefore make it possible to continue fulfilling the stated ambition ‘to send all children to see the Night Watch before their 12th year!’ This scheme has been set up because not all schools have the resources to achieve this on their own.
