Your mobile guide

Rijksstudio is a part of our website where you can scroll and swipe through the Rijksmuseum’s online collection. You can save detail images of works and build a collection of all your favourite pieces. Just pick a theme and start your own collection of cats and kittens on canvas, flower arrangements or the most gorgeous gowns in the museum. Or go in search of the craziest ‘selfies’. When your collection’s complete, use the Rijksmuseum App to turn it into a route. Now you can experience your personal Rijksmuseum whenever you visit.
