The Rijksmuseum opens on Saturday 13 April with a festive programme on Amsterdam’s Museumplein, led by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands who will perform the official opening ceremony in front of the Rijksmuseum. Everyone is welcome to join the outdoor opening programme starting at 11:30AM. Following the ceremony at noon, members of the public will be able to access the museum free of charge until midnight, entering on a long orange carpet that will stretch like a catwalk from Museumplein to the Rijksmuseum’s spectacular new Atrium entrance. To give as many people as possible the opportunity to visit the museum, members of the public will be taken on a special tour of the highlights of the museum’s celebrated collection.
Before the official ceremony begins at midday, Queen Beatrix will receive a guided tour of the transformed Rijksmuseum, and will hear private performances by trumpet player Eric Vloeimans and the Netherlands Wind Ensemble, and a recital by writer Remco Campert of a poem that he created especially for the opening. An artwork by Dutch designer Christian Borstlap will also be unveiled in the museum and will remain on show for the opening weekend.
The opening ceremony on Museumplein will be heralded by 12 spectacular fanfares, one from every province of the Netherlands. The musicians will enter Museumplein from the Rijksmuseum Passageway and line up for Her Majesty. After her guided tour of the building, Queen Beatrix will walk the orange carpet to Museumplein to perform the official opening ceremony. Thereafter everyone will be invited to visit the museum for free.
