The best time to visit the Rijksmuseum Museum is April through May. You’ll have the chance to avoid the massive crowds of tourists that fly in during the summer and enjoy the best weather of the year. The months of September through November also see lesser crowds. Winter is understandably cold, but the upside is that airfare and accommodation are cheaper.
If you’re going by tram, just take Tram 2 or Tram 12 to the Rijksmuseum stop. You can also take the Metro by hopping on No. 52 and alighting at the Vijzelgracht stop. Another option is riding a bicycle to the Rijksmuseum. Otherwise, if you’d prefer to drive around Amsterdam, then you should know that there is no parking near the entrance of the museum. Try parking in the paid Q-Park parking structure underneath Museumplein on Van Baerlestraat. You can also get the IAmsterdam City Card which offers unlimited use of Amsterdam’s whole public transportation system during the card’s validity, as well as free entry to a number of museums.
Rijksmuseum opens from 9 am to 5 pm every day including national holidays.
The Rijksmuseum is known for its vast collection of one of the finest artworks of prominent artists. One of the largest museums in the city, it spans over 1.5 km and houses famous paintings by artists like Johannes Vermeer, Van Gogh and Rembrandt.
