Here’s a little secret: June is the quietest month at the Rijksmuseum

Have you been looking forward to visiting the Rijksmuseum? But have the crowds been keeping you away? Here’s a little secret: June is the quietest month at the Rijksmuseum. There is often no entrance queue, and it’s quieter inside the museum itself. The garden offers plenty of enjoyment too, from the sculptures by Alexander Calder, to the flowering plants and the fountain by Jeppe Hein.

So join us for a visit in June! Check Facebook, Twitter and Instagram every day to see what’s going on at the Rijksmuseum.
