The National Museum of Antiquities (Rijksmuseum van Oudheden) contains countless treasures from old, rich cultures. The famous collection of Egyptian mummies and mummy sarcophagi is world-class.

You can select from five permanent presentations during your visit: "Egyptians", "Greeks", "Romans", "Etruscans", "Near East" and "The Netherlands".
