Explore two of Amsterdam's most iconic and fascinating museums on this in-depth private tour with an expert guide: the Rijksmuseum - the National Museum of the Netherlands showcasing 800 years of history and art with over 8000 pieces, and the Van Gogh Museum - which is entirely dedicated to the life and works of Vincent Van Gogh.

Begin your tour with a walk through the Museumplein (museum square), a pretty park around which many of Amsterdam's impressive museums stand. Your expert private guide will take you inside the awe-inspiring Rijksmuseum - the vast National Museum of the Netherlands.

The Rijksmuseum displays everything from Neolithic artefacts to an extensive collection of Dutch masters, including Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals, and Jan Steen. You'll learn the history of the Netherlands through art, and see in exquisite detail Rembrandt's masterpiece the Night Watch, beautifully lit, as well as other paintings from the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century, including Vermeer's Milkmaid.

After a well-earned break, you'll visit the equally impressive Van Gogh Museum, entirely dedicated to the life and work of Vincent Van Gogh. As well as featuring the work of some of his influential contemporaries, this extensive collection boasts more than 200 paintings and 500 drawings by Vincent, the tragic hero of the post-impressionist era who didn't sell a single painting in his own lifetime. Today his works are sold for millions at auction.

The collection will take you on an in-depth journey through the life of the artist, detailing the different creative periods that characterised Van Gogh’s genius and periods of instability. You'll hear about his friendships, and arguments with Gauguin - and the fateful incident with the knife and his ear. Your tour ends inside the Museum where you are free to explore more at your own pace.

Please note: Vermeer's Milkmaid is currently travelling and cannot be seen at her usual location. However, you can see our other works by Vermeer, such as The Little Street and The Love Letter.
