Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum a must see attraction.


My favorite exhibit at the Rijksmuseum has got to be The Milkmaid by Johannesburg Vermeer. He actually poked a pin hole in the canvas to be sure all lines lead back to one point. This is a still with the exception of the perception of the milk pouring into the bowl. This is one of many Vermeers proudly displayed in the hall with Rembrandt’s Night Watch and others.

While one hour is enough for a quick peek, two or more hours will allow guests time for an audio tour or self guided in depth look at the many artists on display. Note: bring your own headphones to save a few euro on the audio tour which will cost 5 euro.

Cross the square and visit the Van Gogh Museum too. Get tickets in advance to avoid the lines.
