In preparation for their re-opening in 2013 after a 10 year renovation, the Rijksmuseum chose to display more than 100 of their masterpieces from Rembrandt to Mondriaan with Optium Museum Acrylic®. The properties listed above as well as the clarity of the material led all involved, including curators, conservators and preparators to choose Optium for frames used for drawings, prints, and photographs, hands down.
