In the halls of this wonderful building a large collection of buildings are available, including Rembrandt and Vermeer.
The Van Gogh museum (another must see) is close to here.
By far the largest museum in the Netherlands, housed in a monumental neo-renaissance building designed by PJH Cuypers. The Rijksmuseum (State Museum)ranks as a major European museum of Western European painting and decorative arts.
