Vermeer exhibition 2023 – cultural activities


The great Vermeer paintings Blockbuster show is coming up in the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum, from February 10 through June 4, 2023

It will be very busy there, and I advise buying tickets for a 9 AM entry.

If you have not bought the Vermeer tickets then I have just found out the ideal plan here:

Go to

and book friendship for 1 person E 50 per year 

or 2 persons together E 75 per year. 

This will get you unlimited multiple entry into the Rijksmuseum and Vermeer exhibition without having to book a day or time block. By email you will receive a voucher giving you unlimited entry.


As an art history professional I have studied Delft and Vermeer for the last 40 years and lectured and published extensively. To prepare yourself in the days before: In Amsterdam I offer an At Home preparation class for in-depth study and analysis.  My offer of At Home is here.


Leaning tower of the Old Church.

A walk in the ancient well preserved Delft will also be very educational. More information here Delft Walk: Please note I will have to travel by train from Amsterdam to Delft. A likely starting time is 10.30 if you go there by yourself. Alternatively we could travel together an I can offer you a ticket rebate on the train ride from Amsterdam Zuid (South) railway station.
