  • We were lucky enough to have caught the Romanov and revolution exhibit ad well as the Golden age of Amsterdam. This is in the top 3 for attractions in this wonderful city.  more »

  • Both exhibitions were very interesting... The Romanov story and the Berger's of Amsterdam... Great sandwich and cappucino in the cafe... The bread is dairy free so my lactose intolerant friend was very happy
  • This place does not have a permanent collection. It had 3 special exhibitions at the time of our visit. The cafe restaurant is spacious and beautiful. And hits the spot as you walk through this beautiful city.
  • When I was here it was so busy that it was not possible to move through the exhibition at my own pace. It is nice that they offer audio tours. When I found a quiet place it was actually really nice to learn about the history of the building and the Hermitage.
  • Really nice museum, it's spacious, user friendly and clean. The exhibitions are well organised and accessible in English and Dutch. The audio tours are also available in French and Spanish.
  • Another Russian rip-off? Very small exhibits, very expensive price - I did all 3 museums in a couple of hours. Some of the exhibits were copies, not even real art - but at least had interesting historical information. If you have a free pass, then go. If you have to pay; not worth it.
