  • This is a very nice Museum, with works by key to understanding Russian culture of the time. In particular the exhibition on Catherine II was quite concerned and full of ideas. Recommend to visit absolutely.

  • The museum large, clean and nicely organized. Especially the exposition about Catherine the great was extraordinary.
  • Ok. Nothing special. But exhibition of Ecaterina was very interesting.
  • Branch of the Hermitage in russia. Beautiful collection.
  • Loved every minute of it. Must see, expecially if you have the ''I amsterdam'' card!
  • This museum is an asset for the city of Amsterdam, because of the location, architecture and the rotating exhibits which sometimes features artwork on loan from the St. Petersburg Hermitage. In the late 17th Century this majestic building served as a home for elderely women. Now the inside has been renovated to provide an interior designed by architects Merkx+Girod. It can feel a bit cramped during high visitor loads. Overall worth a visit once the other major museums have been checked off.
