Christmas time in Amsterdam--help on museum tours, a day trip

Jump to last reply

My wife and I have plans to travel to Amsterdam, this Dec. 18 through Dec. 25; we're healthy, late-50s, and enjoy walking cities, taking in museums and culture, enjoying people, and food.

We have flight and well-located accommodations set. We're looking to put together our plans for the days there.... we'd be grateful to hear from you on two or three of our challenges.

1. We've gotten a lot out of guided tours (of the Louvre, Uffizi Gallery, Prado), and we'd like your thoughts and suggestions for a tour of the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh (by the same tour guide, perhaps). We've done preliminary research and heard about one or two, but we'd appreciate hearing more of your thoughts.

2. do you have a suggestion about a day trip, Delft, perhaps. Is it reasonable to spend a day getting to and from and taking the time out of activity in Amsterdam to make this trip?

3. finally, as far as we can tell from websites, postings, etc., museums like the Rijksmuseum,... they're open everyday, including Christmas day. Does anyone have a source of reliable information on what museums may be closed on Christmas, Christmas eve, etc.?

Thank you

John & Marsha
