Rijksmuseum opens doors late for Rembrandt exhibit

The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam will be open on Friday nights in the coming months to give people more opportunity to visit the large Late Rembrandt exhibition. The exhibition opens on February 12th. 

The exhibition includes more than a hundred paintings, drawings and prints and is the first retrospective the Rijksmuseum offers of Rembrandt's work between approximately 1652 and 1669. The exhibition was in The National Gallery in London these past few months and attracted a quarter of a million visitors.

The museum will be open on Friday nights between 19:00 and 22:00 from February 27th to May 8th, except for March 6th. The museum's doors normally close at 17:00 pm.
