    rijks museum

    Favorite thing: my favorite thing about amsterdam is the fact that i truly felt free while there,this had nothing to do with the fact that i was on vacation. this city had a calming effect on me and my fiance, at no point during our trip did i think about al queda attacks, or any negativity for that matter. it was like the world was on hold for 11 days, and we were just enjoying what life had to offer.

    Fondest memory: im personally going to miss all but the red light district, that's the only part of amsterdam that makes me feel uncomfortable. we weren't approached by to many drug dealers or beggers, in fact we only were approached in the red light by these types. even then a firm NO usually did the trick.i was especially drawn to the rijks museum, it has more culture and history than all of las vegas combined. that place was a magnet for me, anytime we were near i was taking a new picture of it. the museum it's self was breathetaking, we spent a couple of hours there oohing and ahhhing.

    Favorite thing: pay a visit to the palatial Rijksmuseum located at Museumplein. Please note that most of the museums are closed on Mondays, including the Rijksmuseum. Here, you can see a vast number of priceless art collection including Rembrandt's famous masterpiece - 'Night Watch' which an acid thrower tried to destroy in 1990.

    Favorite thing: Rijksmuseum

    Fondest memory:
    Rijksmuseum has the country's best collection of modern and contemporary Dutch art. The best of the country's artistic and cultural heritage together under a single roof.

    That's really a massive museum, and seems impossible looking around everything in one go!

    Favorite thing: visit the Rijksmsueum which is set in its historic home designed by P.J.H. Cuypers, houses the largest collection of art and history in the Netherlands. The museum has an internationally renowned collection based around the paintings of the seventeenth-century Dutch Republic, the Golden Age, including twenty works by Rembrandt, four by Vermeer and numerous other paintings by artists such as Frans Hals and Jan Steen. Displayed at the very heart of the museum is Rembrandt’s Night Watch. But the museum houses more than just paintings: there are superb collections of silver, delftware, doll’s houses, prints, drawings, the mysterious Asiatic art and a recent completely renovated presentation on Dutch history. Works of art on paper, prints and drawings and since 1996 the photographic collection, are shown four times a year in different exhibitions.

    Favorite thing: The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is the largest museum in Holland and attracts
    well over a million visitors each year. It is internationally celebrated for its
    exhibitions and publications as well as its scholarships and research. The museum
    features works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals, Jan Steen, Breitner, as well
    as dolls houses, silver, prints and drawings, delftware, furniture, weaponry, ship
    models and Buddhas. The museum is well worth a visit for the décor alone as it
    devotes considerable resources to the design and layout of exhibitions. Cutting
    edge designers are regularly commissioned to work on Rijksmuseum projects.
