Staying in Amsterdam you should go to this newly opened museum to see art of the Hermitage from Russia. Very impressive exhibitions which are all temporarily displayed, because the Hermitage wants to let the people of the Netherlands see the great variety of the main Hermitage in Saint Petersburg. Every time a great surprise!

This musuem is a branch of the world famous musuem in St Petersburg. Apparently the exhibits will change but when we visited there were two features,a collection of portraits ,both individual and groups dating from the golden age of Dutch expansion and an extensive selection of material relating to Catherine the Great.

The Outsider Art Museum is but a small corner of the larger Hermitage, but it is lovingly curated to affect penetrating contemplation.

Reading some negative reviews before I visited, I thought I was no going to enjoy this museum...However, I actually thought it was one of the best ones I visited. Extremely well thought, especially the Portraits exhibition. The audio tour was also nice. Not crowded and good ambience.

This branch of the Hermitage Museum is nicely done and appears to have some outstanding exhibitions When we were there it was a very interesting exhibit on Catharine the Great and an exhibit on Dutch group paintings. It is very well worth checking out, and easy to get to

We went to the exhibit on Catherine the Great. The exhibit artifacts are impressive, and the audio tour provided lots of context and history that made the exhibit even better. We went through the exhibit in about two hours.

A surprisingly good museum considering it is an adjunct of a museum in another country. Had an excellent special exhibition of 'Golden Age' art when I visited. Definitely worth a visit but check what the special exhibits are when you are gioing.

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.
