The Rijks museum  in Holland had an idea: Let's bring the art to the people and then, hopefully, they will come to see more - at the museum. They took one Rembrandt painting from 1642, Night Watch and brought to life the characters in it, placed them in a busy mall and the rest you can see for yourself!

  1. What a creative idea to get folks into the museum. Especially the youngsters.

    King Crimson's The Night Watch. Starts out a little rambunctious but it calms down to become a nice song and the lyrics are great.
