The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam has been closed for a long time for a major renovation. All the art treasures were carefully stored in transport boxes, and some of these beautiful works have traveled all over the world. The Rijksmuseum is open again and now the crates are no longer needed. The Rijkswachters give the transport boxes a new life.
All Rijkswachters are handmade and made from part of a transport crate. As a result, every Rijkswachter has his own look and none are the same. But you can choose the Rijkswachter you want.
