Free Multimedia Tours: discover more and easily find your way around
-Visit the museum your own way: follow a route or search for the numbers accompanying the works of art. Using interactive floor plans and directions, the app will take you to the start of the area or tour of your choice. During your tour, the app will take you from stop to stop. The blue space shows you where you are at all times. Please do keep your location facilities and Bluetooth switched on for this purpose.
- The tours: perfect for everyone! The aim is to see more. Each work has more layers: a 3D audio introduction clip and an animation that allows you to discover unique and surprising details about the collection. And for a number of works you can access additional commentary by inspiring experts and passionate enthusiasts.

Great map, overly descriptive narration

The map that takes you from work to work is terrific. IMO the narration is too descriptive (telling me things I can already see) instead of informative. Just barely four stars. PS. Sound works fine.

Same as the audio guide at the museum

Folks...same yourself €5 (what you will pay for the audio guide at the museum) and get this app for free. They are the same thing! I verified this with the museum!! Easy to navigate, the app has various tours from highlights to different collections. GPS helps you navigate from area to area (you’ll need to use the museum’s WiFi).

Each description is around a minute and gives details beyond what printed signs have. There are also additional details if you want to learn more. I don’t have an art background so I appreciated hearing about techniques of the artist or interpretation of how they used light or symbolism in their work.

Great app!

I always try to get an audio guide at museums and was really pleased to learn this app provides a free one! Unlike a typical audio guide, you could select from a variety of different “tours” and type in the numbers from individual works. I loved the flexibility this provided. We did the highlights tour and a special exhibition tour - both were lovely! Also the app features a map / GPS that directs you to the next work in each tour, which is incredibly helpful for a huge museum like the Rijksmuseum!
