This has been by far the best thing I did in Amsterdam. Saw both the Napoleon and Amsterdam portraits shows. Both were smart, thorough, and well laid out. The Napoleonic collection was unparalleled and the layout of the museum was unique and added to the experience. Best part: not crowded--everyone is at the rijksmuseum, etc, and missing this gem.

Besides the beautiful building on the banks of the Amstel, I could see the exhibition "Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age," real lesson of the story of how it formed society of Amsterdam, since the seventeenth century until today, through beautiful paintings of the time.

A grand place to see to give an indication of how the Dutch dealt with their elderly several centuries ago. It now houses a museum linked to Petersburg's famous Hermitage and often has expos with artefacts from Russia. But there are other expositions as well. Check the calendar for recent activities

Lovely museum, no photos allowed but the staff were so nice. With admission the audio tape is included. Small crowds so it was more enjoyable. I recommend this one. It's part of I Amsterdam city card.

I was a little worried about taking my kids (7, 6 and 2) to Hermitage because I didn't know what to expect but the museum was great. We saw Napoleon, Josephine and Alexander exhibition. The layout was great, the explanations were just enough that it we read them and they made sense. There was enough diversity with paintings, some jewelry... More

I've been to a number of exhibitions here and each time, I have been left confused by the interpretation and signage. It is a beautiful building containing some very beautiful artefacts with a lovely shop or two, but the staff are a bit useless. I have given up trying to eat in the cafe as each time I have queued,... More

Best exhibition ever... The whole layout, exhibit planning, room arrangement, story lines, information boards and exhibits themselves really come together in a great story. The story reflects on not just the war but the many elements of what was great respect and friendship of adversaries and the lives around the three of them... Really spetacular..

The thing about under-hyped places is they usually outperform expectations. I had little expectation of this place but was pleasantly surprised. The two exhibitions being shown were quite frankly, life changing, and what I would deem to be once in a lifetime for me. I felt I was in the middle of a Tolstoy Novel as I was walking through...

This is a huge low building with no permanent collection. It hosts rotating shows. In this case Napoleon & Josephine (yawn), and Portraits. Were it not for the fact we had a Museumkaart which included entry, I would have been a bit disappointed. There seems to be a lot of wasted space in the gallery- a huge entry hall, wide... More
