  • I'd like to put 3.5 and not 4. But good... like all the museums in Amsterdam it's crowded. Get there early. We choose three expos of the moment the Romanovs and the Russian revolution followed by the golden age and Rembrandt and then an exhibition on contemporary arts but by people with disabilities from different countries great expo on the Romanovs or everything explained with a lot of objects, paintings, drawings, costumes, photographs etc. 2 hours because there is a lot to read even with the audio guide Expo golden age , a bit disappointed... only Rembrandt full other paintings Size XXL but telling the same thing - 30 minutes third expo a bit disconcerting because one does not realize that those are disabled artists who are exposed but after one realizes that despite the distances (China, Japan, Netherlands) they say the same thing, the same emotions or fears thousands of kilometres away without knowing... interesting study afterwards - 30 minutes

  • The Hermitage Amsterdam has a lot of potential: great exhibition space, allowing flexible setups, and access to what would be a great collection. I visited both Spanish Masters and Catherine the Great...  more »

  • 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.
