The Rijksmuseum is the most famous museum in the Netherlands.In the new Rijksmuseum absolutely everything is new! There is an entirely new installation, a fully renovated building, new public facilities, in newly laid out garden and a brand-new Asian Pavilion. The Night Watch is the only exhibit to be returned to its original location. In 80 rooms, 8,000 art and historical objects tell the story of 800 years of Dutch culture from the Middle Ages up to the present day.

As exhibition constructor, Bruns was responsible for furnishing the Asian Pavilion, the Special Collections exhibition and 20th century Gallery. In addition, Bruns B.V. was asked to develop all the mountings for the museum pieces and eventually install them on location.

The Asian Pavilion is a building designed by Cruz y Ortiz arquitectos that houses the museum’s collection of Asian art. There is a serene exhibition which consists of free-standing images made from various materials on pedestals and various display cabinets where the emphasis is on wall-hung cabinets. 

The Special Collections exhibition concerns an exhibition designed by Wilmotte & Associés S.A. in the basement of the museum. It is a high density exhibition displaying related collections of silver, glass, porcelain, pottery, weapons and model ships. These objects are displayed exclusively in display cases designed in line with the architecture.
