Your all-in-one Guide to Amsterdam Museums
Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House & Hermitage Amsterdam

If you go to Amsterdam (Holland) and want to pay a visit to its world-famous museums, then this digital set is for you. All four volumes in the series Amsterdam Museum Guides are written for people who like engaging, accessible guides without art historical jargon.

Rijksmuseum Amsterdam - Highlights of the Collection is a lavishly illustrated publication containing the most important highlights of all centuries. Written in a pleasant conversational style, the book describes masterpieces of the Dutch Golden Age such as The Night Watch and The Jewish Bride by Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, The Milkmaid and The Woman Reading a Letter by Johannes Vermeer, and the famous pictures by Jan Steen and Frans Hals, amongst many others. But the museum guide is not only about Dutch 17th-century paintings. It also describes the highlights of the 18th, 19th and 20th century, the highlights of the applied arts like porcelain, furniture and silver, and - last but not least - the exquisite collection of Asian art, displayed at the specially-built Asian pavilion.

In The Anne Frank House in Amsterdam you will get valuable advice on how to avoid the queus and make the most of your visit to this memorable hidingplace of Anne Frank. Discover the secret annexe behind the bookcase where Anne, the 13-year old Jewish girl and her family lived for 2 years, and where she wrote the now famous Anne Frank diaries. You will read about the daily life in the Achterhuis, about the people hiding, the Anne Frank Tree, the betrayal and subsequent deportation.

Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam - Highlights of the Collection is of course another must see when you travel to The Netherlands. The guide gives a biography of Van Gogh and provides valuable background information on many paintings and drawings by Vincent van Gogh and his contemporaries and predecessors. By reading about them beforehand you will be able to maximize your viewing experience.

Hermitage Amsterdam is the only European satellite of the famous Hermitage in St Petersburg in Russia. Slightly off the beaten track, but also a must see when you visit Amsterdam. The museum is housed in a fascinating old building, Amstelhof, and stages excellent temporary exhibitions.
