This weekend marks “the reveal” of the completely renovated Amsterdam Rijksmuseum, the National Museum of The Netherlands, after 10 years of rebuilding and restoration. A Spanish architecture firm worked to transform the 19th-century building into a museum for the 21st century with a bright and spacious entrance, a new Asian Pavilion and freshly restored galleries. The original design has been fully reconstructed in several of the museum’s key spaces. Now visitors will be able to journey chronologically through 80 galleries to view the collection of 8000 objects telling the story of 800 years of Dutch art and history.
Queen Beatrix will perform the official opening ceremony in front of the Rijksmuseum, which will begin with 12 spectacular fanfares, one from each province of the Netherlands. That day, attendees will be invited to visit the museum for free, getting a special tour of the museum to highlight the vast collection. (We’ve put a link on our Facebook page if you want to know more.)
