Every traveler’s dream is to be up-close and personal to iconic landmarks, flower-laden villages, and picturesque hamlets. As we visit Amsterdam, we will see historical canals, world famous museums and iconic paintings that some only glimpse on a postcard. Join us as we explore the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam today.
The Rijksmuseum is a Dutch national museum dedicated to arts and history in Amsterdam. The museum is located at the Museum Square in the borough Amsterdam South, close to the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and the Concertgebouw.
The famed Rijksmuseum has been significantly updated, taking over a decade to renovate. Rijksmuseum contains the most renowned works of arts by Dutch and Flemish artists and artifacts in the world:  One of Rembrandt’s most famous paintings, The Night Watch is in the hall of fame along with Vermeer’s Kitchen Maid and the Woman in Blue Reading a Letter.

Amsterdam is just as famous for its artists and museums as it is for its canals.  Inside the Van Gogh Museum is over 200 of the post-impressionist master’s paintings, include The Potato Eaters and Sunflowers. Some of the most significant artifacts are the hand-written letters between Vincent and his brother, Theo. Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890) is one of the Netherlands’ most famous artists.
