Some of the fabled hermitage Collection from St. Petersburg Russia in Amsterdam. The exhibit concerned the Silk Road and included artefacts, archeological videos, and some of the history of the several strands of the Silk Road. There was no line and building is ultra modern and purpose built, and it has the best museum shop of the many we have seen. We spent about 90 minutes there.

I love this museum! It is in a very scenic place in Amsterdam, surrounded by lovely canal houses. The museum itself has even a really nice ballroom where you can sit and view the canal houses.

The exhibit that was there when I visited was Expedition Silk Road. The Hermitage in Amsterdam is part of the Hermitage in Russia, so their collections always get swapped. They just have so many items that they can't be shown all the time. It's a great way to see a lot of rare items and really learn about history and culture. Not as many people go to the Hermitage, so there is more space and it is not as crowded. I highly recommend going!

I was attracted by the Silk road exhibition and , whilst not spectacular, it was well worth seeing it was well worth seeing, and a nice way to spend an hour or so. Obviously wrongly, I had expected the S R Exhibition to be a part of the museum, with other exhibits elsewhere etc, but in actual fact there was nothing else to see. Quite pricey-15 euros pp, no reduction for OAPs!

This gorgeous building, until recently an old peoples home overlooking the Amstel river, near the Jewish museums, Waterlooplein market and Botanical Gardens, has temporary exhibitions so it depends whether you are interested in what is showing. I saw the Gaugin and contemporaries exhibition a few months back which was full of treasures but not many Gaugins! On a walk to the Hermitage from the flower market make sure to drop by Puccini, an exquisite handmade chocolate shop in a typical small street but look out for the bicycles whizzing through and stay on the pavements!

This is a joint venture with the Hermitage from St Petersburg, Russia. the current exhibit is "The Silk Road. The curators have done a great job of explaining the history of this trade route between Asia and Europe. The exhibit includes many artifacts that Russian archeologists have uncovered in the different cities that line this route. The building is also very interesting as it is a restored women's shelter for the 18th century. It is not well publicized but should not be missed.
