After a renovation that took an unprecedented (and apparently unanticipated) ten years to complete, the Rijksmuseum, one of the worlds greatest treasure houses of art, finally reopened in April of last year. In this video, Queen Beatrix is seen taking part in the opening ceremony. (This was her last official act before abdicating in favor of her son Willem-Alexander.)
And this flash mob is one of the most wonderful things I’ve ever seen. I’ve watched it over and over again since I first came upon it several days ago.
What a fabulous celebration of some of the world’s greatest art!
