Beyond the Exhibits

This presents all of the Rijksmusem's 4,000 paintings, ordered by their creation date, from left to right.
Their position above or below the x-axis is determined by whether they are currently on display or in the museum's storage facilities, respectively.
Visiting the museum’s exhibits only scratches the surface of the collection. We plan to expand this section to empower you to further browse archived art. This provides an exciting opportunity because it's one of the few clear advantages a virtual museum experience can have over an in-person experience.
