    From December 2003 to 2008 the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam will undergo the biggest rebuilding, renovation and modernisation programme in its history. During this period the finest works from the 17th century in the Rijksmuseum will continue to be on view under the title The Masterpieces. The redesigned Philips Wing will provide an opportunity to see the highlights of the Golden Age together in surprising combinations. The more than 400 masterpieces will be on display in the Philips Wing from 20 December. The famous dolls' houses, the finest Delftware, a wealth of silver, icons of Dutch history and of course the paintings by the great masters of the 17th century, Frans Hals, Jan Steen, Vermeer and Rembrandt will have a provisional new home in the Philips Wing. For many of these works this will be the first time that they have left their place in the Rijksmuseum. Rembrandt's Night Watch, for example, has rarely left the main building designed by Pierre Cuypers since it opened in 1885

    Opening hours
    The Rijksmuseum is open every day from 9:00 to 18:00, on Fridays also from 18:00 to 22:00.

    Closed 1 January.
