My wife and I are in Amsterdam and decided to visit the Hermitage Museum which bills itself as the largest exhibit from the Hermitage outside of Russia. We paid our 30 Euros and went in only to find that there was not one item on exhibit from the Hermitage in Russia. Not one single piece. We returned to the ticket... More

The hermitage had only one exhibition when we went , an interesting but rather strangely samey collection of group portraits of the guardians of Amsterdam and its charitable institutions in the 17th and 18th centuries mainly. There were no treasures from the Hermitage in St Petersburg anywhere to be seen . Check before you pay !!!

Visited recently and was amazed by the space and explanation of the paintings. Well organised and laid out. We went on a quiet Sunday so no lines. We took an audio tour which is highly recommended.

A great way to understand the history of Holland's rise to power and how the different guilds played a part in society. The artwork is wonderful and the information shared is fantastic. You can go at your own pace. You may have to wait a bit at some of the pieces where audio is given as they do not have... More

I had the pleasure to see both Dining with the Tsars and Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age, free with my museum card, and I'm really impressed.

Walking through the main hall of this exhibition you will probably be overwhelmed by the extreme luxury which was common at the Tsar's court in Sint Petersburg. The Hermitage in Amsterdam is an auxiliary branch of the famous Hermitage museum in the old Russian capital and regularly shows a part of the rich collections of that world famous museum. Unfortunately... More

Our weekend in Amsterdam was planned around visiting 2 exhibitions at The Hermitage and we weren't disappointed. 'Dining with the Tsars' was spectacular with the most amazing table settings and the history lessons on the audio guide were very educational! 'Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age' was completely different being paintings from the 16th and 17th century but was brilliantly... More

After a day at the Rijksmuseum for 17.5 € we expected to get value for money at what is touted as the sister to the Hermitage in St Petersburg. Not only was the entrance fee 15€ we then had to stump up a further 5€ for the exhibition of Dutch paintings (many of which come from the Rijkmuseum). Then another... More
