Opening hours and prices

The Rijksmuseum will re-open on 1 June. All visitors need to book a start time, including Friends of the Rijksmuseum or Museum Card holders. This way we can enjoy the art together in a safe way.

Open daily 9 to 17h

Starting 1 June the Rijksmuseum will be open again on a daily basis. Opening hours are from 9 to 17h. The Rijksmuseum shop and the Café are open from 9:00 to 18:00. The Rijksmuseum Gardens are closed for now.

A very warm welcome to you as always, now with some new ways of doing things. There will be fewer people in the museum at any one time, for example, and extra attention for hygiene.
