Rijksmuseum

Highly recommended
Established by the French in The Hague in 1798, the original collection was transferred to Amsterdam in 1808 by Louis Bonaparte, who added The Night Watch by Rembrandt. The collection was initially housed in the Royal Palce and then the Trippenhuis, before Pierre Cuypers built the current neo-Gothic structure (1875-1885). Famed for its 17C paintings, the museum also has other magnificent collections: sculpture and decorative art, Asian art, costumes, textiles, prints and Dutch art from the 18C and 19C.
