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

The Hermitage is very easy to access both by public transport or car. I went to see specifically the exhibition on the big portrait of the golden age and I was not disappointed. For the first time you can see in the same place about 30 group portraits, just like the " night watch" . It's a like a trip... More

No "cultural" trip to Amsterdam is complete without a visit to the Hermitage. A tram to the Waterlooplein, across the quaint bridge and you are there. The restoration and updating of the museum has provided excellent viewing rooms of different sizes. All exhibitions are superbly presented and could be described as world class. Best to make a visit to the... More

We were staying just along the canal from the Hermitage & we had an hour before we were picked up to go back to airport so called in. We had an I Amsterdam card so entrance was included. We only had time to quickly look at the ground floor of Dining with the Tsars. The exhibits were beautifully exquisite while... More

Do not miss out on the very inspiring Dining with the Czars exposition which runs until March 2015 - it could not have found a better home than the Hermitage. A superb Russion-Dutch momentous venue steeped in history with contemporary comfort and use of the space. Also visit the Dutch large Guild Masters exposition on the top floor, impressive and...

I was expecting more. There were two temporary exhibitions, but the rest of the museum was empty. Don't expect much...

When we visited this museum, it had an exhibition of royal dining tables gone by, which was very interesting and gave a different perspective of "fine dining". The museumkaart gained you entry to this museum, thus jumping the queue.

Visited current exibition "Dining with Tzars" (available until March 2015) - i liked it, it was entertaining. Then we continued on Route 2 - golden age of dutchmen. I think it was rather good look into development of whole nation. Did not manage Route 3. Two routes took approximately 2.5 hours. Booking tickets online will make your life easier &... More

I was expecting this to be quite good and it disappointed me a little bit. The building is quite large but not much of it seemed to be used. There were 2 exhibitions, 'Dining with the Tsars' and 'Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age'. While both were very good, there really isn't a permanent exhibition apart from these. It wasn't... More

I'm not sure how a museum can be cool and relaxing but this one was. I loved the museum display - plenty of information but presented in an interesting way. I look forward to revisiting when I am back in Amsterdam.
