Operation Nightwatch

Published June 23, 2020

Operation Night Watch is the largest research and conservation project ever on Rembrandt's "The Night Watch". The Rijksmuseum invites members of the public to watch the entire process at the museum and online.

The Night Watch will be encased in a state-of-the-art clear glass chamber designed by the French architect Jean Michel Wilmotte. This will ensure that the painting can remain on display for museum visitors. A digital platform will allow viewers from all over the world to follow the entire process online continuing the Rijksmuseum innovation in the digital field.
