Roland was extremely knowledgable and had us at the museum quite early to avoid the holiday crowds. Instead of an exhaustive tour of each painting, he moved us through the museum touching on a few pieces and explained the significance of the painting and where it fit into Dutch history. It was great as a parent to put some focus into the tour without it being overwhelming. We had the opportunity in the afternoon to go back and explore more of the museum on our own. It was a great tour!
