Re-opening date Rijksmuseum Amsterdam known

The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam will be re-opened completely for the public on April 14, 2013.

The renovation of the Rijksmuseum, one of the Netherlands' most important museums, was scheduled to last 4.5 years, but this will end up to be 10 years.

The collection will be shown in chronological order - on every floor you will enter another century. The new museum will have a standard collection of some 8,000 object on display, in 80 rooms.

The museum will be open 365 days per year.

The Rijksmuseum's most famous work, the Nachtwacht (Nightwatch) by Rembrandt, will return on its current location.

One wing of the Rijksmuseum has remained open during the renovation, so that the most famous works of art can still be seen.
