I was lucky enough that after the disappointing Amsterdam Museum, the local branch of the famous Hermitage had an exhibition of painting from the Dutch Golden Age, portraits and landscapes. They gave a great insight into the society and lifestyle of this fascinating era. First class.

The Hermitage offers an outstanding collection and exhibition. Especially the Dutch Masters-exhibitions gives a great view of dutch paintings trough the history of time. Still, the ticket prices are a bit high in comparison to other museums.

Each of us value art but go to other museums in Amsterdam and see far superior paintings. To see both exhibitions it cost us €25 each which was poor value for the money.

Probably the second most interesting museum in Amsterdam. I recommend purchasing tickets online and arriving as early as possible.

The exhibition "spanish masters" is much ado about nothing: you are being seduced by names like Goya, Velazquez, El Greco, Zurbaran etc. The first 3 are represented by -I believe- 1 painting each. Only some minor masters are present in abundance. Moreover museumcardholders have to pay an extra € 2,50, which is'nt much but it's a lot for the disappointment... More

The permanent exhibits are interesting but not overly impressive. The enormous exhibit of portraits of powerful and important men of historical Amsterdam soon become tiresome. Temporary exhibits are worth visiting. It receives changing exhibits from the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg, Russia, which are worth seeing. For an unexplained reason visitors are not allowed to take photographs.

I was not thrilled with the show of Spanish masters. I was expecting more, and the exhibition didn't really have strong theme.

Nice museum, worth a visit. Two things that should definately improve: 1) Directions inside the museum are not clear. 2) opening hours should be extended (museum closes at 17.00h on a Saturday). The Hermitage is Sint-Petersburg is way better.

A steep entry ticket price but the Spanish masters exhibition was very good, with some interesting artifacts complimenting the old masters on show. Don't miss the Goya prints upstairs. The audio guide mystified me but it played nice baroque music without commentary and was free.

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.
