The building of the Rijksmuseum (Reichsmuseum) in neo-renaissance and neo-Gothic style was built between 1878 and 1885 as a “treasure house” according to plans by the important Dutch architect of historicism Pierre Cuypers (1827-1921).
With 80 exhibition halls and around 8,000 exhibits on an area of 30,000 m², it is one of the most important museums in the country and even worldwide. It houses works by Rembrandt, Franz Hals, Jan Steen, Salomon and Jacob van Ruisdael, Vermeer and Van Gogh, as well as a huge number of historical objects and documents. Probably the most famous painting, Rembrandt’s “The Night Watch”, has kept its traditional place after and during the renovations.
On April 13, 2013, after around ten years of renovations and renovations, the building was ceremoniously reopened in the presence of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands. The renovations had cost around 375 million euros and were planned by the Spanish architects Cruz and Ortiz. There is, for example, a newly designed entrance area, a new “Asia pavilion” or a dining room. A newly designed library and a lecture hall can also be found in the building. The great museum thus spans an arc from the 19th to the 21st century.

Around 2,500 exhibits from 1870 to the present day are on display on an exhibition area of around 8,000 m². The plans for the new building come from the Dutch architecture firm “Benthem Crouwel”, which was founded in 1979 by Jan Benthem and Mels Crouwel. Because of its white facade, 100 m long and 18 m high, and its unusual shape, the people of Amderdam also refer to it as the “bathtub”.
