Winter art exhibit at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport

Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport has a lot going for it.

Besides being just 20 minutes from downtown Amsterdam, the airport is just a fun place to hang around.

There are really fun play areas for kids, a casino for adults, a short-stay Yotel hotel perfect for napping and refreshing up, lounge chairs, a library and some really great artwork.

The airport is also home to a branch of Amsterdam’s infamous Rijksmuseum.

Loocated on Holland Boulevard, post-security, between Piers E and F, the museum is open every day and there is no admission fee charged.

The museum has a permanent exhibition of ten works by Dutch masters of the Golden Age as well as temporary exhibitions that change several times a year.

The current special exhibition, ‘Dutch Winters,’ will be up through March 2011.
