The exhibit rotates regularly with items loaned from Russia. The current exhibit is about entertaining by Russian royalty with displays of the elegant, elaborate table settings. I was fascinated, but my husband was bored. Be sure you know what exhibit is displayed before going to the museum.

We saw dining with the Tsars. At 15 euros per adult for a few bits of a handful of dining services, some descriptive boards, an unintelligible 5 min video and lots of empty corridors and stairwells not good value. Especially compared with the same price at the Rijksmuseum which gives you hours of extensive art, craft and pottery.

The Hermitage always puts on a good show. I went to the exhibition 'Dining with the Tsars' yesterday on its opening day. While a display of crockery may not be everyone's idea of a wild time, the exhibition is put together so beautifully, it is hard not to like. The central area contains six or more tables set out in... More

My review is limited since we saw a time limited exhibition, but it was one of the best I have ever seen. The Silk road exhibition was amazing. It was well laid out and the items displayed were amazing and well explained. My only regret was that this was the only museum that isn't over-flowing with merchandise from its special... More

We enjoyed the silk road exhibit; it was very well put together and educational. Every time I go to this very large Museum I feel there is so much wonderful space that is empty. They pretty much just have the one exhibit of the moment and there are very few permanent areas. I would love to see some more permanent... More

This museum is the Amsterdam branch of the St Petersburg museum. It has exhibitions on loan, and the one that was on during our visit, on the Silk Road, was very good. Lots of objects and information (some may find this a bit overwhelming). As much of the material on show was very fragile the lighting was low, which some... More

I arrived at opening time and avoided any potential crowds. The Silk Road display was on and I found it quite interesting and taught me about a subject I found I knew little about. As other reviewers have said, I'm sure the particular exhibit determines your view of this museum. I spent only about an hour but certainly did not... More

I went half-way across Amsterdam in the rain to see the Silk Road in the Hermitage museum and I must say I was a bit disappointed. Maybe because it wasn't my thing in the end, I don't know, maybe it was the rain! Seemed to be expensive for what it was, although it is free if you have the Museum... More

Great art gallery! It's small and away from the touristy crowds. The collections are fantastic as they are from the hermitage in st Petersburg. Highly recommend this gem over the other art galleries.
