On April 13, the Rijksmuseum (State Museum) of Amsterdam reopened its doors after 10 years of renovation. I was lucky enough to visit the place for a few hours on the evening of April 17, but there’s just so many pieces to see. I reckon I haven’t even seen a third, I didn’t even get to see Hokusai’s woodblock prints, so I hope to go back and visit again very soon.

Extra Info

I’ve tried to add details and translations to most of the pieces in these pictures, so click on one of the gallery previews if you’d like to read more about it!

  1. I visited the Rijksmuseum clearly more than 10 years ago (although it doesn’t seem that long ago!!), and I remember it so clearly. Just beautiful and where I fell in love with Hokasai’s woodblock prints! Lovely to see it open.
