Can we book this walk for later in the day?
The Rijksmuseum becomes very crowded throughout the day. It can be especially difficult to do the family-focused activities on this walk as the museum gets more crowded. We strongly recommend a 9:00 am start time, but we can certainly accommodate requests for other times.
No. Unless you remove the museum tickets from your cart, we will purchase tickets on your behalf and your expert will have the advance tickets ready for you. If you remove the tickets from your cart, we will assume you will be purchasing a museum pass or tickets on your own.
Tickets for the Rijksmuseum are not timed and are valid for the whole day, so you can go in and out as much as you like.
Does this tour include any current temporary exhibitions?
The tour visits the Rijksmuseum's permanent collection. Your entry tickets are valid for temporary exhibitions as well, but often, it is necessary to separately book time slots for visiting the exhibition(s). If you would like to include a particular temporary exhibition, we can usually do so on a private, custom basis. Please get in touch with us for more information and updated pricing.
Vanessa has lived in the Netherlands for over fifteen years. As an Art Historian and expert in Cultural Heritage, living here has sparked her curiosity about this country and its society, with its unlimited options of sites to enjoy and explore. She speaks English, Spanish, and Catalan, as well as Dutch because she believes it is important to be able to understand the society that has welcomed her. The fields in which she is specialized are Heritage and Museums like the Van Gogh Museum (where she has worked as an official guide for the same museum organization) and the Rijksmuseum, but also the city of Amsterdam itself because every step you make in this city opens a new historical window. She has been working as an assistant curator in different galleries and museums of Amsterdam and as a Heritage Specialist and Consultant for the University of Barcelona, the Catalan Government, and also for U.S. companies. As a guide, she aims to help visitors feel like locals and to expand their knowledge about the art, history, and culture of the Netherlands.
