Rijksmuseum tickets and how to plan a visit to the most important museum in the Netherlands?
In this post, I gathered all the information to skip the line at the entrance and get ready to visit the most beautiful Flemish art collection in the world.
With over 8,000 works and art objects on display, the Rijksmuseum is a true museum of wonders and you can’t go and see it without having planned a plan with works to see and opportunities to grasp so as not to miss what is really important.
RIJKSMUSEUM TICKETS: WHERE TO BUY THEM
The Rijksmuseum is the most important museum in Amsterdam and it is essential to book tickets to skip the line at the entrance and also to take advantage of the guided tour service.
It is also possible to combine some tours that take place in the city, such as the Amsterdam canal cruise, to visit the Rijksmuseum.
Tickets to see the Rijksmuseum can be purchased in 4 ways:
1 – at the museum ticket office, but the line at the entrance can be very long.
If you decide to arrive at the Museum without a reservation you will need to be patient.
2 – on line, through the site that allows you to book tickets, choosing the day and time of entry, allowing you to skip the line at the entrance –> Rijksmuseum: Skip The Line
3 – Combining the entrance to the museum with a cruise on the canals of Amsterdam. The tour lasts a total of 3 hours and allows you to discover the city through its works of art and observing its historic buildings from the canals that were the fundamental element of the city.
To book the combined ticket go to the page –> Rijksmuseum: Skip the line ticket and 1 hour cruise
4 – By booking a guided tour, choosing among the many proposals available and allowing you, in some cases, even to combine a visit to other museums in Amsterdam or to make original experiences. All available offers can be found on the page –> Rijksmuseum: Tickets and Tours
