Partially closed down for renovations until 2009, Rijksmuseum still offers one of the best displays of art I have seen thus far. In addition to a variety of other artists, the museum houses works by great 17th century Dutch masters, Frans Hals, Jan Steen, Vermeer, and Rembrandt. I highly recommend the audio tour. For a couple of euros it is very enlightening and and illuminates the painting's history and nuances.

The museum itself is also a work of art. The architectural details, inside and out, are as equally impressive as the collection of masterpieces within.

Admission costs: 10 euro

The Rijksmuseum is open every day from 9am to 6pm, Fridays from 6pm to 10pm. Closed Jan.1
