The New Rijksmuseum
The story of the reopening of the Rijksmuseum
The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is reopening on 13 April 2013 following a 10-year transformation. For the first time, visitors can follow a chronological journey through the collection, with the story of 800 years of Dutch art and history told in a sequence of 80 galleries.
Here, staff involved in the refurbishment process explain the thinking behind the museum's new layout and redisplay.
