The Rijksmuseum Amsterdam

It took about 10 years to complete the renovation and one day I would like to go back and spend a day in the museum.

This is a great image, mind you I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking at here
Bill Phillips: This is the roof of the entrance hall. Like the roof on the British museum it works beautifully with the old building

FABULOUS, Bill. I'll never forget seeing that for the first time...with YOU and Ange.

Are these some sort of fancy baffles to keep the direct light off the exhibits yet natural light come in. I'm baffled by it all.
Bill Phillips: This is the main entrance and it looks fantastic Alan
This is where you and Trimbo should be , in a cage.Its not a bad picture though.
Bill Phillips: Better than stoking the fires with you stood next furnace down

Seems a long way to go for just a day?
Bill Phillips: You are being silly. I note old tiffo was en route to yours so no doubt silliness will continue throughout the day.
That's an amazing photo, Bill. I imagine it makes you dizzy looking up at it.
Bill Phillips: It is very impressive Pauline.

PS thanks for the Clematis info!
Amazing combination of horizontals and verticals Bill. Very impressive
Bill Phillips: Thanks Janet. It was an impressive entrance to a very fine building
Awesome... I like the B&W theme
Bill Phillips: It worked best for me in B&W Preyi
Great picture, fantastic design smile Regards
Bill Phillips: Thank you for your visit and comment Zielona
Quite an impressive construction, doesn't seem to gell with the building from the outside, (I went there in the 60's) but no doubt needs to be seen in its entirety and surroundings.
Bill Phillips: It works beautifully Brian just like the Norman Foster Atrium at the British museum does

Nice cubist approach, with slats to remind any would be art thieves ... Maybe they are slated cubes.
Bill Phillips: You are being a bit intellectual here Louis. I will have to ask chad what this means

Impressive rafters? Bill
Bill Phillips: It is the roof over the entrance. Similar in a way to the one in the British museum and I thought it very fine Lisl
Fabulous graphics shot Bill!
Bill Phillips: The design of this lent itself to this sort of picture Richard

I would like to spend a week in the place.
Bill Phillips: I think you are right comrade. A day would not be anywhere near long enough
You could probably spend a week there, Bill - a pity they don't let you take pics inside!
