I am rather ambiguous in how to write this review. The museum is NOT packed with art borrowed from the Hermitage. Instead there were two main exhibitions 1. The permanent exhibition was of Dutch group portraits in the Golden Age (mainly 17th century)... a lot of group portraits. The audio tour did its best by picking out some of the... More

I ended up spending way more time than I expected as their two expos (Catherine the Great; Dutch Golden Era) were executed in a very high quality way from an educational standpoint. It's highly worthy to see. Especially on museumkaart which only costs 2.5e (vs 25e without). Go here !

Two main exhibits in December 2016: a) Catherine the Great, and b) Amsterdam paintings of town fathers/ town history in 1600's. Expected more. Spend your time at Van Gogh and Riksmuseum.

Only a short trip so we were limited for time - Rijksmuseum is a must but the Hermitage was a lovely surprise . You should also visit the Tuschinski which is very close

Both The Amsterdam Museum and the Hermitage have beautiful exhibitions here. Paintings of the former rulers of Amsterdam are magnificent.

The building itself is impressive and you can walk through the gardens for free. But don't miss the interior. We visited two expositions, Catharina the Great and Dutch Masters. Especially the latter was stunning: the history of Amsterdam and even Holland was told by pictures. Do not miss on the free audio tour, it gives so much more background information.... More

We stumbled into the Heritage Center while walking around Amsterdam and were very pleasantly surprised. It is quite a huge building and had a wonderful museum store and interesting exhibitions, which change quite often. However, the real treat, especially on a sunny day, were the outdoor gardens. Take some time to just sit and enjoy the atmosphere and people watch.

in Museum Hermitage there is a section devoted to 'outsider art'. On December 25th I visited this 'Outsider Art Museum', which had and exposition of chinese artists compared to dutch artists. Fine composition of art throughout the rooms, making it possible to find similiarities as well as differences amongst artists from such different regions. Some photos are posted under artist...

St Peterburg presenting ground in Amsterdam, this place has a history and a kitchen as well. Top class art and overly tech-y usage sometimes.

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.
