  • Beautiful museum, great exibitions, must be visited. Very good oppotunity to visit a beautiful site at least and go to the museum shop.  more »
  • For the first time in this beautiful building on the Amstel River. It was presented an exhibition about the Romanovs. There was a lot to read and gave a clear picture about his life. I thought the exhibition was very impressive because everything still in beautiful state wrong. In October there will be a new exhibition with 50 masterpieces of Dutch painters

  • This museum gave a good insight into the city of Amsterdam, especially the so-called Golden Age. The Hermitage also had an in-depth presentation of the fall of the Russian Empire.  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.
