Tour description provided by Viator

Breeze past long lines of tourists and explore Amsterdam's famous Rijksmuseum without the usual crowds during this private 2-hour tour. Guided by a senior art historian, your private group will view the most famous works collected illegally by Dr. Mannheimer.
Meet your professional art historian guide at a time of your choosing by the museum's round information desk downstairs, under the golden letters, and breeze past the lines to begin your private 2-hour tour. Maximize your time inside the world-famous museum as you bypass the crowds with your early-access entry pass, and admire masterpieces by Mediaeval craftsmen and artists up to the 18th century while your personal guide explains the cultural and historical context of each piece of artwork. Enjoy your VIP status as you soak in the atmosphere of the objects and sculptures without the usual crowds. Your art historian studied History of Art at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, which specialises in Christian art. Dr. Mannheimer collected art up to 1939, and after Hitler bought everything, the objects were liberated from the salt mine by the Monuments Men. The story looks like a James Bond Bond movie.
