The Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar provides the perfect impression of this historic town.
“Salomon van Ruysdeel’s townscape of 1644 is the most expensive purchase in the history of the Stedelijk Museum.”
The best way to describe the Stedelijk Museum is the Alkmaar’s memory. You walk through the history of Holland’s cheese capital following themes such as the Dutch Golden Age, Victory and Portrait of Alkmaar.
Be sure to see Salomon van Ruysdeel’s townscape of 1644. At the start of 2017, the museum bought this painting from an American collector for a million dollars, making it the most expensive purchase in the Stedelijk Museum’s history.
