    The museum is huge allowing very little time to see many of its wings. We went to see the old masters and the €10 ticket allowed us access to see painters from the 1850s thru 1930s as well. The old masters collection has numerous paintings by Peter Paul Rubens and many other Dutch and Flemish painters including a Rembrandt. A special classical music concert consisting of a pianist and violinist was offered at noon also covered under the cost of admission with added to our experience. The concert is offered being offered from July 1 thru August 31st, 2018.
