Travelers flying out of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol will be able to squeeze in a last-minute visit to the city’s most popular art museum, thanks to a satellite exhibit of Dutch masterpieces.

A total of 10 paintings on loan from the Rijksmuseum will be on show, featuring the works of Dutch masters such as Jan van Goyen, Willem van de Velde the Younger, Abraham Mignon and Michiel van Mierevelt.

Paintings include portraits, landscapes, seascapes, and floral still lifes.

The collection is being housed in the recently refurbished leisure zone between Lounge 2 and 3, past security.
