Rijksmuseum Schiphol Airport
A small museum exhibit of the original classic paintings at the Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, is a result of collaboration of the two institutions involved. It exists since 2002. If you have some free time before your flight, this is a unique opportunity to see a small, carefully arranged exhibit.
Usually eight to ten masterpiece paintings are presented. Their choice depends on the exhibition theme. The exhibitions change regularly and are generally thematically linked with traveling, business and the history of Dutch art. Among the themes until now were “Sunny skies in the Golden Age”, “Brueghel in Business”, “The art of flying - Bird pieces by Melchior d'Hondecoeter”, “Holland & Japan: 400 Years of Trade”, “Vincent van Gogh: Nature Close-Up” – with eight original paintings by the world’s most popular artist, and recently – “Dutch Cows – symbol of prosperity. Cattle pieces from the Rijksmuseum”.
7 A.M. – 8 PM. Free admission. Identification is required.
