Barack Obama in Amsterdam

Van Gogh Museum closed for security reasons

The arrival of Barack Obama in Amsterdam for a visit to the Rijksmuseum certainly did not go unnoticed by the Van Gogh Museum either. The helicopters that accompanied the American President to the Museumplein and the many security measures taken in the vicinity meant that the Van Gogh Museum remained closed for a day on 24 March. Barack Obama made his visit to the Dutch capital on the morning before the Nuclear Security Summit, which was held on 24 and 25 March 2014.
