Saw a couple of exhibits which were great...

Wasn't able to get an audio tour since sold out. Very crowded but the exhibits were very good and I bet would've been even better with an audio tour!

Very few exhibits. Lots and lots and lots and lots of written information on the walls. Display rooms small and over-crowded. For what was on display it was very over-priced and NOT good value for money. Some sort of visitor restriction should be introduced to allow everyone to experience the exhibition properly.

Amsterdam is full of amazing museums and galleries that one can be forgiven to miss this one. However, being within walking distance from most central locations, it's worth making a detour. It's a not big museum but enough to spend anything from half a day to a full day. It gives flavour of Russian history and specially of Catherine the... More

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 exhibitions. Both had great items on display (especially the first one), really unique gems. Nonetheless, curation was lacking somehow. The accompanying information/guide are superficial, and lack any deeper... More

Not a great museum when held up to the other gems, the Van Gogh, the Reiks. Could be better curated with regard to the special exhibits.

Invited to see the pre-premiere of this exhibition of the Romanov's family. The exhibition is a very well presented time line of this Russian history. Large and small items of the very early days till the end of their life. The tour can be accompanied with audio device - in Dutch and English. A real must-see when being in Amsterdam!

Visited the Romanov exhibition. Well worth a visit. Interesting collection of items from the House of Romanov and a great outline of the background and events leading to the end of the dynasty.

If you have already seen the Rijks and have time, this is worth a visit. Very nice collection as a satellite of the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
