Rijksmuseum Guided Tour in Amsterdam, Netherlands
Learn how Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Frans Hals recorded the phenomenal growth of the Dutch Golden Age during this art tour through the Rijksmuseum's permanent collection! Your tour includes skip-the-line admission to the Rijksmuseum, and the guide will have your tickets ready when you arrive. You and your small party will tour the museum, taking in the highlights of the Dutch Golden Age and the artwork and artifacts that came to symbolize the fledgling Dutch Republic.
See the dollhouse of every young child's dreams, be astounded by the illusionism of the still-life paintings and the interiors of Vermeer, and be moved by the magnitude of Rembrandt's "The Nightwatch." Your knowledgeable tour guide will explain the social and historical background of one of the largest middle-class art markets in history as you go. Your ticket is good for the entire day, so you're invited to stay and enjoy the remaining 8,000 works after the tour. Or perhaps you wish to unwind at the café or gift shop!
