Rijksmuseum Reopening Pushed Back

Amsterdam’s world-famous Rijksmuseum, which is undergoing a major restoration, will not reopen until 2010, two years later than originally planned. “Delays had arisen due to the need for extra building permits after some initial designs had been modified… During the renovation, works by Rembrandt and other Dutch masters such as Frans Hals and Vermeer have remained on view in a side wing.”
