Rijksmuseum Ticket

Step into a wonderful world of art! Rijksmuseum, spread over four floors, holds fascinating exhibits that will leave you in awe. Don’t forget to grab a map at the information desk to navigate the museum easily.

As you explore the Rijksmuseum, you’ll discover much more than just paintings by Dutch Masters from the Golden Age. This extensive collection includes Delftware, sculptures, archaeological artifacts, clothing, prints, and culturally significant objects, all vividly retelling 800 years of Dutch history within a global context. See the most famous masterpieces, illuminated in all their glory, allowing visitors to appreciate every tiny detail.

More than 8,000 objects placed in 80 galleries with a wide permanent collection and many temporary exhibitions are definitely worth your while.

Impressive museum!

I really love Dutch art and appreciate a good art museum, and the Rijksmuseum was a must-visit for me. I set aside plenty of time to explore all the exhibits and took in the beauty of Jan Steen’s masterpieces. The museum can get busy, so come as early as possible. Overall, it was a fantastic experience, and I highly recommend it!


Great value for money!

The Rijksmuseum entrance ticket was a great value for money! We skipped the line and entered quickly, which was a huge plus. The main highlight of my visit was seeing “The Night Watch” by Rembrandt, but there were also so many other beautiful artworks to appreciate. The museum was definitely worth visiting, and my whole family enjoyed it!
