Meet the Dutch masters!

A highly skilled private guide to enrich your visit to Amsterdam’s finest museum: the Rijksmuseum, with its outstanding collection of 17th century paintings and a rich collection that shows the history of the Netherlands. We offer background stories that go beyond the frame, with reflections on aesthetics, Dutch society and history. Experience one of the most crowded places of Amsterdam in an intimate way, with attention for interaction and contemplation. Our guide’s unique approach will make your visit personal and unforgettable!

Our museum tours are developed by Hanneke, whose background is in art history and museum education. A Rijksmuseum private tour really adds value to your visit. The guide will introduce you to some of the most impressive Dutch Masters: to their work as well as to their personal stories. These insights in professional as well as personal motivations shine a light on the individual artists, and to the Golden Age society as a whole. Our museum tours are highly appreciated by seasoned museum visitors as well as art amateurs – who naturally aren’t amateurs anymore after this tour!
