Rijksmuseum Discount Tickets
The largest museum in the Netherlands is the Rijksmuseum. It has an impressive collection of world famous works by Dutch masters. In this blog, we will tell you more about the most famous works that you can find in the museum, and we will give you tips on how to get a well sought after Rijksmuseum discount.
The Rijksmuseum Amsterdam has a lot of famous paintings. But these you really shouldn’t skip:
- The Milkmaid, Johannes Vermeer
This oil-on-canvas painting by Johannes Vermeer is one of the finest attractions in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. The painting shows a kitchen maid who carefully pours milk. It is painted with an enormous amount of detail and is said to evoke the same ‘wow-effect’ as the Mona Lisa.
- The Merry Family, Jan Steen
The painting of The Merry Family by Jan Steen shows how people dressed and lived in the 17th century. The moral of the painting is seen on a note hanging from the mantelpiece: ‘As the old sing, so shall the young twitter.' Children will copy their parents.
- The Threatened Swan, Jan Asselijn
This detailed and lifelike painting shows a swan defending its nest from a dog. When the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam purchased the painting, it was interpreted that the swan represented the highest politician at that time protecting Holland from the enemy.
- The Night Watch, Rembrandt van Rijn
Of course, we had to add The Night Watch to this list. The greatest accomplishment of Rembrandt is a not to miss large painting of world class quality. The Rijksmuseum Amsterdam has a gallery that leads straight to the painting, and you are going to want to stare at this masterpiece for a while.
