This is an excellent museum, an annexe to the famed Hermitage Museum of St Petersburg, Russia. They have a wonderful temporary exhibition of memorabilia from Napoleon, Josephine and Tsar Alexander. You can see their uniforms, weapons, art, furniture etc. And it's an interesting story--especially about the Tsar who conquered Paris and then protected and liberated it.

A fabulous extension of the Hermitage in Russia. Absolutely top notch, focusing on Dutch paintings from the Hermitage collection. When we visited there was a special world-class exhibit about Napoleon, Josephine and the Zar of Russia that was amazing.

Loved this museum. It was an afterthought for us. But had I known I would have made it a top priority to go there. I loved all aspects of the museum.

The museum has excellent changing exhibitions. The building itself is modern with good facilities. Some more activities for kids would be good.

We very much enjoyed our visit to see the Napoleon, Alexander & Joséphine exhibition, together with the Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age. It was very interesting. informative and well presented. This is one of the museums available on the I am Amsterdam city card and is easy to get to by tram. It's well worth taking the time to... More

There are two exhibits, and you pay for each individually. You also pay a separate fee for the handheld device for each exhibit. The exhibit of large portraits was interesting and well done; however, i found the size of the pictures to be overwhelming. The other exhibit was more to my taste as it dealt with Russians artifacts, and was... More

excellent presentation. Didn't realise Josephine was such a knowledgeable collector in her own right - also see the Hortus garden for more on Josephine's plants. the paintings and exhibits are well worth seeing to trace the amazing journey of the French army to Moscow and back (well a few of them). The sea shell table was worth seeing alone -... More

Unlike the more well know museums, this one is a place for a relaxing afternoon experience. The Napoleon exhibit was informative, but probably not well located in Amsterdam. There is still some resentment among the Dutch and Belgians against the Napoleon era. There are, however, some amazingly large civic paintings here as well as details about the powerful families behind... 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.
