Rijksmuseum van Oudheden

Recommended
This museum exhibits its fine artefacts with particular care. As well as a particularly interesting Egyptology section, the museum houses collections of antiquities (Near-East, Egypt, Greece and Rome) as well as an archaeology section dedicated to the Netherlands. Of particular interest is the Temple of Isis of Taffeh from the Augustan era (27 BC-14 AD), donated to the Netherlands during the construction of the Aswan Dam.
