Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, The Netherlands - Kasten Storage of Paintings

The Rijksmuseum is one of the world’s top ten museums. It is perhaps best known for its magnificent collection of Old Masters. Since 1885 the collections have been housed is the impressive building designed by architect Pierre Cuypers in the heart of Amsterdam.

Because of an extensive renovation programme, the collection stored in the museum repository had to be relocated. The Rijksmunt building offered a suitable alternative.
