Rijksmuseum is Best European Tourism Project

Rijksmuseum AmsterdamThe British Guild of Travel Writers granded the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum the European Tourism Project Award. The Rijksmuseum received the award at a Gala dinner held at The Savoy Hotel, London on Sunday 3 November 2013

Susie Boulton, a famous writer of travel books nominated the Rijksmuseum because: “In all the 30 years I have been writing guidebooks on European cities I have never seen such a remarkable transformation of a national museum. Nor have I ever seen such enthusiasm and excitement of a nation as it waited for the opening day. The soaring new atrium, the revamped galleries, Cuypers’ Renaissance-revival building restored to its former glory – it’s all a far cry from the dark museum I remember from my student days.”

Just another reason to visit the Rijksmuseum, if you needed any.
