I never saw the Rijks before its extensive renovation, but it is just beautifully done in keeping with its original style and "flavor". The main hall that contains "The Nightwatch" is so well done with a nice selection of Dutch Old Masters. It gives you a good overview of some of the top artists, without being so overwhelming like many art museums. After visiting this main gallery, you can visit other selected areas, as your tastes and energy dictate.
