AMSTERDAM (AP) The Rijksmuseum, the National Museum of the Netherlands, is finally set to reopen to the public, with Rembrandt van Rijn masterpiece Night Watch reclaiming its place of pride. The giant painting hangs in the same central position it did before an epic, decade long, 375 million ($480 million) makeover, flanked by works by Johannes Vermeer, Jan Steen and thousands of other Dutch cultural and artistic artifacts. The 19th century building red brick exterior, which resembles a fairy tale castle, has been restored but left intact.

The painting placement reflects Dutch history, a crowning achievement of the Golden Age when the Netherlands was a major naval power and Amsterdam was one of the world most influential and wealthy cities. Gallery of Honor is a kind of basilica that ends not with a Christian display, but a civilian display: Rembrandt Watch, Pijbes said.
