Crisscross the museum together with a tour guide in search of the best of the best, from the Night Watch and The Jewish Bride to Asian temple guards and Breitner. Discover the most talked about and, according to others, tasteful works of art... and add your own finale.

But who decides what you should see? We think you should! That’s why the tour guide highlights not only well-known masterpieces, but also takes your own choice into account. We’re curious to know what it will be!

A great guide with a good story, responding to questions from us, not a standard smooth story, so: very satisfied !!


Good to know

The Night Watch: visibility temporarily reduced

Operation Night Watch offers a unique opportunity for visitors to follow the restoration of Rembrandt’s masterpiece live at the Rijksmuseum. We are currently studying the effects of vibrations on the canvas and how we can minimise any chance of movement in the canvas. These activities are temporarily reducing the visibility of The Night Watch. This work is an essential step in the restoration process, and we are unfortunately unable to avoid reducing visibility of the painting . This phase of the research project will continue until mid-September.
