I found it odd my 35-year old Dutch partner has never been to the Rijksmuseum, Holland’s national museum. In contrast, in my nearly 4 years here, I’d already been 3 times! Thankfully, the stars aligned and we made an impromptu visit together.
The first surprise of the day was being charged only half-price for entry because we used our ING card to pay. Sweet!
In previous visits, the staff made it clear there was no way to take pictures inside. Checking the museum web site beforehand, it still stated that photography was not allowed. However when we got there and saw several people taking photos, it appears they’ve relaxed that rule. Woohoo!
Looking forward to 2013 when the entire complex has been renovated in all its Dutch glory.
