Arrived here mid-morning and was surprised how empty the museum was. Special exhibition Alexander, Napoleon and Josephine was superb. - layout and exhibits. The other exhibition The Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age was almost as good including huge paintings of the guilds displayed in a vast hall. Cafe for lunch was really good, self-service or fine dining. All well... More

This museum currently holds two major exhibitions. The Napolean and Josephine section was quite interesting, providing some interesting insight into the era and the subject matter. Paintings, weaponry, jewelry and personal artifacts tell a great story of the famous couples lives. The main collection is a focus on the early years of Amsterdam and the influence of the guilds and... More

High ceilings, modern museum in a big building with inner garden area (it is a square building around the courtyard). The size of the building is impressive. The displays are beautiful. The entrance tickets system is a bit confusing, there are several parts of the museum that you have to re-scan your ticket to gain access. Don't go to this... More

The Hermitage Amsterdam is housed in what used to be a old-age home for 400 women, established in the late 17th century from the inheritance of a rich merchant. The building’s classical facade extends along the river Amstel for 102 metres: the city’s longest facade at that time. For 324 years it was a home for the elderly, and in... More

Truthfully I went here only as I was cycling past and decided to pop in and get some value from my annual museumkaart. I was given a combined ticket that allowed me into all the current exhibitions. The subject matter of the museum is not really to my taste, however I am always seeking to broaden my mind and found... More

Went there in August. It was pretty quiet and we were told that is was so because children went back to school. The collection on the display was "Napoleon, Josephine and Alexandre". It was informative and interesting. With cloth and jewelry, weapons and other things. Like it a lot. However, the exposition about portraits was a little boring and audio... More

We visited here today and went to two of the Galleries. First we saw the Napoleon, Josephine and Alexander Exhibition which is on until Nov2015. The paintings were stunningly beautiful depicting various scenes and Battles from the lives of the trio. There were also lots of other artefacts and costumes there on loan from the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg... More

The building housing the museum is very interesting in its own right. While the permanent collection gives you a taste of what is housed in Russia it is the temporary exhibitions are what makes it a great find. This was our second time. Years ago it was Paul Gauguin on display. This time it was Napoleon and Josephine commemorating Waterloo... More

Having visited the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia, we were a bit disappointed as we had anticipated rows of paintings by famous artists. While there were many nice paintings, the other exhibits were narrowly focused and fairly academic, but interesting none the less.

We had about 4 hrs to use up before catch coach to ferry so went to Hermitage Amsterdam. The Hermitage Amsterdam is annex to the one in St Petersburgh, so has exhibitions that are linked in with Russia. This time it was 'Napoleon, Josephine & Alexander'. It was an excellent exhibition clearly linked to the 200th Anniversary of Waterloo. Coupled... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood 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.
