It has been nearly 10 years since I set foot in this museum. And I have missed it terribly,it’s my favorite so much to see so many little spots to get lost in. People travelfrom all over the world to see the museum and this past decade they have seen just an minor part of it however good news on the horizon : next month in April it will open up its doors again.

Presenting not only a big collection of the Dutch Masters there is so much more to see. It encompasses the Netherlands’ rich cultural history with objects such as model ships, sculptures, archaeological artefacts, clothing, weapons, prints, photographs and more. Thousands of items from the past give an impressive visual account of Dutch history within a global context and retelling the 800-year history of Amsterdam, from the Middle Ages to the present day.

Build in 1876 Designed by architect P.J.H. Cuypers the building is itself worth a visit as well. It’s been a full decade and this coming 13th of April 2013; the Queen will open the doors of the new museum and the entrance will be free all day.
