Behind every great artwork is an even greater secret… the closer you look, the more you discover!

Mysteries and stories about artworks in the Rijksmuseum doing the rounds. What was Jan Steen really trying to tell us? Can the Nightwatch really move at night? How do you open an ingenious lock? If you look close enough, you will discover the secrets behind them all. With the Rijksmuseum family tour, a multi-player quest, everyone follows along on a smartphone or tablet, but together you solve each puzzle and complete the quest!

Visitors are able to borrow a device at the multimedia desk in the Rijksmuseum to start their family tour.

Step by step, story after story and secret after secret you move towards the surprising conclusion of the quest. The family tour combines audio, video and interactivity in easy-to-use mini games.

Before the tour was launched the app was tested thoroughly. At an early stage paper prototypes were created, to gain insights that would support the creation of an easy-to-use app.

''Beautiful family tour! Much fun and very informative with the guide. Highly recommended!''
