Hg2 : The Hedonist


Amsterdam’s best known museum alongside the Anne Frank Huis, and certainly the city’s grandest, this has been only partially open since 2003, with the restoration work not due to be completed until 2013. Still, even partially open, this vast museum has some glorious works on display. The Vermeer and Rembrandt collections rightfully get the most attention, with famed works like The Night Watch (by the former) and The Milkmaid (by the latter) attracting plenty of foot traffic. But The Masterpieces, the best bits of the museum’s permanent collection, offers many more Golden Age gems. Most will recognise Frans Hals’ The Jolly Drinker, but there are plenty of highpoints that many will never have seen before. Even in its reduced state, the Rijksmuseum could happily fill a couple of hours.
