Established during Holland’s golden age, when the Netherlands was the richest country in the world, the Rijksmuseum is home to the Netherlands' most treasured arts and antiquities. Groundbreaking works from Rembrandt, Johannes Vermeer, Jan Asselijn, as well as delftware, sculpture, asian art and prints, fill its storied halls. Currently under renovation until 2013, the museum does have a limited selection of works, including the world-famous Rembrandt’s Night Watch on view in the Philips Wing on Museumplein square. More of museum’s collection can be admired at the Rijksmuseum division in Amsterdam-Schiphol airport.
