Rembrandt Cruise

Experience the Dutch Golden Age on the water and in the Rijksmuseum!


In conjunction with the Blue Boat Company, the Rijksmuseum offers you the chance to enjoy this unique cruise: a floating art-history tour through the canals of Amsterdam leading past places that all are represented in the Rijksmuseum. An audio tour brings historical locations to life, after which you can visit the Rijksmuseum’s masterpieces whenever you wish.

Where did Rembrandt live? Where did he paint the Night Watch? Where did Gerrit Berckheyde paint his magnificent work The Bend in the Herengracht? And where were criminals hanged during the Golden Age? See and experience the answers to the questions and more, during this unique art history canal cruise!
