If your only contact with Amsterdam is Schiphol Airport, you can still get a taste of the city's world-famous Rijksmuseum -- and for free. The Rijksmuseum Amsterdam Schiphol, a joint venture, marks the first time a museum anywhere has had a branch at an airport. It was officially opened in late 2002 by His Royal Highness the Prince of Orange. The museum maintains a permanent exhibit of paintings from the Dutch Golden Age (1550-1650), as well as examples of Delftware, silver, and icons of Dutch history. Previous special exhibits have included Rembrandt etchings and van Gogh paintings. The museum is located after passport control and is open daily from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
