For the final weekend of the exhibiton Vermeer, the Rijksmuseum is extending its opening hours – until 02:00 on the nights of Friday 2 and Saturday 3 June. This means more than 2,600 extra people will get a final chance to see the exhibition. Prospective visitors should apply for these new tickets via the Rijksmuseum website. The Vermeer exhibition runs until 18:00 on Sunday 4 June.
To get the chance to buy tickets, visitors need to apply by 17:00 this coming Friday 12 May on the website of the Rijksmuseum. The Rijksmuseum will then select the successful applicants using a computer-generated random selection process supervised by a notary. All apllicants will be notified by email no later than Tuesday 16 May. Successful applicants will be eligible to buy a maximum of two tickets for an evening start time from 21:30 to 00:30 on either Friday 2 June or Saturday 3 June.
Interest in the exhibition Vermeer has been incredible. Tickets went on sale in September 2022. Rave reviews across national and international media led to the exhibition selling out just three days into its run. This prompted the museum to extend exhibition opening hours even further. All the extra tickets this generated were also snapped up in just a few days. Now, the Rijksmuseum is extending its opening hours one final time to give Vermeer lovers a last chance to see the exhibition.
