The main gallery of Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum (Jan Luijkenstraat 1, 1071 CJ, Amsterdam; phone +31 20 674 7000), which closed for a €375-million renovation in 2003, will reopen to the public on April 13, 2013. A small section had remained open to display certain works.

The museum’s collection consists of about 8,000 works of art, most notably paintings from the Dutch Golden Age, including Vermeer’s “The Milkmaid” and Rembrandt’s “The Night Watch,” as well as sculptures and decorative arts.

It will be open 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 365 days a year. Adult, €14 (near $18.50); under 19, free. Advance tickets for the reopened museum will be available online from mid March 2013.
