Queen Maxima of the Netherlands was the picture of elegance as she reopened one of Amsterdam's oldest museums for the first time in 75 years.
The Dutch royal was over the moon as she was presented with a key to the ARTIS-Groote Museum on Artisplein, which has been closed to the public for more than seven decades.
Sporting a stylish gold gown, Maxima, 50, was seen beaming as she clutched a bouquet of flowers on her way to the museum - which has been restored after closing in 1947.
Maxima's fashionable dress was decorated with a tonal pattern and featured a boat neckline, blouson sleeves and fitted waist, while the gown's seasonal skirt was slightly flared.
The royal teamed the gown with a matching gold headpiece, with her blond tresses styled into a neat updo and added some glamour to the look with a pair of teardrop pearl earrings.
The monarch attended the museum's opening program before being given a tour of exhibits, which now explore the connection between humans, animals and nature.
The national monument ARTIS-Groote Museum dates back to 1855. At the end of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the museum played a prominent role in collecting and researching scientific knowledge.
The historic museum has now been sustainably restored and will become the second ARTIS museum on the freely accessible Artisplein after the ARTIS-Micropia, also in Amsterdam.
Maxima opted for a pair of sand-coloured block heels, decorated with a bow, while opting for a glamorous make-up look using a dark smokey eye, touch of bronzer and a dash of highlighter.
It's been a busy month for Maxima, who last week carried out a string of engagements following the King's Day festivities, which officially marked Willem-Alexander's birthday across the Netherlands.
King's Day festivities see the country take part in games, concerts and street parties to celebrate Willem-Alexander turning 55.
'The celebration of King's Day in Maastricht is about to start,' an enthusiastic captions shared on the Dutch royal family's official Instagram read.
'The Royal family is on their way to the Sint Servaasbrug, the starting point of the day. The route takes the family past the different 'lives' of Maastricht and the province of Limburg,' it continued.
