Rijksmuseum
The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam has many of the world’s finest masterpieces and tells the most exciting stories. Over 8,000 treasures are displayed across 80 exhibition rooms, telling the tale of 800 years of art and history. A journey through time, spanning 1.5 kilometres, runs from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Guided by this official Rijksmuseum multimedia tour, you can browse through the Rijksmuseum in any particular order, getting to know the artworks at your leisure. Or opt to follow one of the carefully selected tours, guided by a narrator to a selection of the museum’s highlights.
The app is specially build for use in the museum itself, not all functionalities will work outside the museum.

See more
The Rijksmuseum app has a simple principle: See More. The app works as a magic window, revealing remarkable stories and surprising details about the Rijksmuseum's collection as well as its architecture. With the Rijksmuseum app your smartphone is transformed into a magnifying glass, a set of binoculars, a time machine, an infrared scanner, a sketch pad, or a magic wand.

Family Quest
The Rijksmuseum app now includes a special Family Quest, which is a unique item within the app. This game can be played by a minimum of two and maximum of four players, each on their own smartphone.

The Family Quest takes families on a tour past eight objects in the museum, and at each one they are challenged to unravel its secret. The participants receive different kinds of tasks: sometimes an individual task on their own device, and sometimes group tasks on one of the devices. When all eight secrets have been revealed, there is a secret surprise ending. The Family Quest is suitable for adults and children from 6 to 12 years.

Special features
The Rijksmuseum app includes 3D-audio compositions, offering the experience of navigating through 3D space. The soundscapes sweep you along in the atmosphere of each tour. And every tour offers the option to collect a digital souvenir, which you can save on your smartphone or share by e-mail.

Save your favourite artworks in Rijksstudio
You can easily save your favourites by clicking in the heart in the corner of the work of art that you like. You can find them afterwards in your own Rijksstudio on the website of the Rijksmuseum (www.rijksmuseum.nl). With your Rijksstudio you can collect artworks, order a reproduction of the artwork, or download an image so you make something yourself.

Practical
The Rijksmuseum app also contains practical visitor's information, and schedule of the current activities in the Rijksmuseum.

How does it work
You can download the app before you even set foot in the Rijksmuseum and browse through the tour to prepare your visit. You can also download the app on arrival, using the free wifi network at the Rijksmuseum. It is recommended to bring your own headphones, to enjoy the full 3D audio experience. You can also purchase headphones in the museum for €1.50.

Visitors can also hire an iPod touch in the Rijksmuseum for €5.

Great way to visit the museum Very interesting audio tour, a great addition to the beautiful paintings. The app works well. If you can, bring your own headphones (eventhough also works without).

Very good on Moto x(2013) kitkat I only gave 4 out of 5, because I found that it only gave a great performance IF you went into Settings/Apps and clear the cache for the app after each period/exhibition, otherwise the cache keeps growing and crashes the app.
