As I’ve mentioned on more than one occasion, Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport is one of my favorites in Europe. The international gateway is not only well-equipped and conveniently located, it’s also home to a wonderful branch of the world-famous Rijksmuseum.
The mini-museum, which is situated on “Holland Boulevard” beyond security, is free and open 24 hours daily. This past week, they launched an all new exhibition of landscapes, still lifes, and portraits from the 17th century.
Schiphol also has an excellent mini-branch of the NEMO Science Museum and its own library. Who could ask for more for a long layover?
