The displays were arranged by French designer Jean-Michel Wilmotte, who also helped design the interior of the Louvre in Paris.
As a final, somewhat eccentric touch to remind the world Amsterdam is still a living city with its own cultural demands: a bike path runs straight under the center of the building’s central arch, offering cyclists a view of the building’s beautiful new courtyards.
The museum expects to attract as many as two million visitors annually after the renovations, from 1.3 million in the last year before it closed in 2003.
Tickets will cost 15 euros ($19).
Among totally new displays are an Asian art pavilion; access to the museum’s ornate library; and a new wing devoted to the 20th century, with works by Piet Mondriaan and graphic artist and furniture designer Gerrit Rietveld, among others.
‘‘That’s history now too, and we collect the past,’’ Dibbits said, grinning.
