The dutch museums

Small on land but big on culture, the Netherlands are filled to the brim with a rich blend of visual and performing arts steeped in history. Home to almost 1,000 museums, the most famous of which are the Rijksmuseum and the Vincent van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, and Boijmans van Beuningen and the Kunsthal in Rotterdam, the Netherlands offer a cultural pick-me-up just waiting for you to discover.

Dutch museums are bulging with homegrown legacies with such a rich history of Golden Age painters and other artists, including Rembrandt, Vermeer, Van Gogh, Jan Steen, Frans Hals, M.C. Escher, Karel Appel and Piet Mondriaan. Even the small Mauritshuis Museum in The Hague, which is known for, among others, the famous ‘Vermeer’ and ‘Rembrandt by Himself’ exhibitions, has made a name for itself.
