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.

Well informed exhibit of the Silk Road. Lots of information and artefacts. Only go if you are interested in the exhibit on show. Can spend half a day in there but it does get a bit hard going if you read every display, but very interesting at the same time. cost 2.50 euros with I am Amsterdam card

The Silk Road Exhibition, currently on display, has some fascinating items and artifacts on display. You can move from East to West or West to East in the exhibit - there is no set route. The exhibition changes every few months so check to see if what is currently being displayed is of interest to you. It is a nice... More

I spent a few hours at the Amsterdam Hermitage. The exhibition was on the Silk Road. The collection was amazing and quite extensive. The building itself is nicely maintained and renovated, with a rather nice dining facility. It certainly is an excellent addition to Amsterdam's museum-scene, especially considering the historical tie between Amsterdam and Peter the Great.

We returned for a third time last month to the Hermitage, Amsterdam's outpost of this first rate museum in Russia. The show this time is all about the riches and artifacts of the Silk Road trade routes over many hundreds of years. This all concerns a part of the world that very few Westerners know much about. I found it... More

This is a branch of The Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, Russia, which offers a unique opportunity to see treasures from the St Petersburg museum without traveling quite so far. The museum has no permanent collection (other than a small exhibition about the history of the building), but rather mounts two major exhibitions a year from the collection in St... More

The exhibitions at the Hermitage are always interesting and well presented. Expedition Silk Road is no exception, although I did find it a bit abstract. I am already looking forward to their next exhibition which starts in September 2014.

Interesting and amazing views of artifacts from the SILk Road. You can pick your path to start your travels East or West. Follow University students as they explore parts of the Silk Road today.

Hermitage Amsterdam has exhibitions from Hermitage St. Petersburg. In July 2014, Expedition Silk Road showed the treasures from the expeditions found from Silk Road. The exhibition was well designed and very informative.  Hermitage Amsterdam is located in a 17th century building, originally built to house elderly women. The building was renovated inside to a modern exhibition space. Ground floor has... More
