After a 10-year renovation, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam will reopen officially on April 13, with the public opening taking place the next day.

According to a press release, “the whole museum has been renewed–the historic building has been restored and new public facilities have been created including a new Asian pavilion and a renovated garden–only Rembrandt’s most celebrated painting The Night Watch will return to its original setting.”

The museum collection will be presented in a “new display,” which will tell the story of the Netherlands from the Middle Ages to the present. The museum will also be open for 365 days a year, from 9 p.m. to 5 p.m. everyday.

Some 8,000 objects are currently being moved into the new facility.
