View the VERMEER exhibition at the Rijksmuseum - from your own home

The Vermeer Exhibition at the Rijksmuseum is not only iconic - having reunited 28 of his 37 known paintings in one place - it's also extraordinarily popular and has sold out! 

There are no more tickets available at the moment.

The Rijksmuseum is working hard to give more people the opportunity to see the exhibition. From 6 March, we will provide a new update via the Rijksmuseum website.

It says (bottom left) "There are no more tickets available at the moment"

The exhibition opened on the 10th February and continues until 4 June 2023.

  • the museum is limiting tickets to make the artwork accessible
  • there is no waiting list
We are continuously looking at ways to give more people the chance to see this exhibition.

Keep an eye on the website and social media channels for updates on ticket availability.
So I thought I'd highlight how you can see the artwork in the exhibition without a ticket.

How to see the Vermeer Exhibition without a ticket

I think the popularity of the exhibition has maybe prompted the Rijksmuseum to make the exhibition more accessible ONLINE to those who cannot get tickets and/or to those who live outside the Netherlands.

Here's how you can get a guided tour of the exhibition.

Rijksmuseum Website: there is a tour of the exhibition narrated by Stephen Fry in English

  • Closer to Johannes Vermeer - it covers particular themes of his work and draws attention to a number of aspects which you might not be aware of - even if you know work by Vermeer well.

Rijksmuseum on Instagram: there are guided tours next week - in both Dutch and English

    On Tuesday, Maeike, one the the Rijksmuseum's guides, will give a live tour of the VERMEER exhibition on the Rijksmuseum's Instagram channel and answer the most frequently asked questions.
  • Dutch: Tuesday 28 Feb. / 6 - 6.30 PM cet
