Discover the art and objects that defined the new Dutch Republic. Be amazed by the illusionism of the still-life paintings and be inspired by the scale of Rembrandt’s "The Nightwatch."

Nmmm not having been able to have a guide in French language we opted for a visit in English. What was our surprise to have a guide of Spanish nationality for a visit in English. The visit was almost incomprehensible even the gentleman was erudite and charming. We very much regretted our purchase.
