This museum is expensive. It makes sense to do the combo ticket and visit all parts of the museum, unless you're only interested in one particular section - I'd still recommend the combo ticket. The price for one section is very high, but then it's only a few Euro more for the combo ticket... a strategy by the museum I'm sure to get you to pay more by opting for the combo ticket.

The museum is rather large with a fair number of museum pieces, mostly paintings in the permanent parts of the museum. The exhibition while I was there was about Russian jewels and fashion - super interesting and had very exquisite items on display.

My favorite by far was the HUGE room full of the paintings by the Dutch masters.

Certainly a must see for museum and art lovers, though if you're deciding between this museum and the Rijksmuseum, I personally would choose the Rijksmuseum since the Rijksmuseum is larger, has more diversity of items on display, and it's cheaper.

The Hermitage Museum in Amsterdam consists of different galleries that can be visited individually or all together. The portrait gallery and the art of Russian comic propaganda were nice and the real hit was the exhibit on the jewels and trappings of the Russian Court. The museum was worth visiting - if your itinerary allows, visit the exhibits.

The Amsterdam Hermitage is a sister to the Hermitage in Russia. The museum has apparently sent many paintings back to Russia in support of Ukraine. We saw only one notable painting that we recognized. We were on an organized tour and would have preferred to skip this stop.

We spent a fabulous morning at hermitage Amsterdam. The Jewels from the Imperial Russian Court were amazing. The audio commentary and sympathetic displays meant you could spend time admiring each piece of jewellery, clothing, personal items and portraits. After a stop in the Cafe we explored the rest of the Hermitage Amsterdam. A must do if if you can.

Our room at the Waldorf Astoria was not ready for our check-in so we walked a couple of blocks to explore the Hermitage Museum. I’ve always wanted to go to the Hermitage St. Petersburg, so thought this would be a good start as they had collections from there, as well as from other museums. We purchased tickets when we arrived. We were very fascinated by all we saw, read and how old so many of the art pieces were. The Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age took my breath away. I could have sat in the Gallery room for a coupe of hours, on the comfortable benches, taking the magnificent works of art in. What a wonderful experience it was!

In this beautiful building which used to be a woman’s retreat is housed, in conjunction with its sister site in St. Petersburg, the largest art collection in the world. Unfortunately we were not allowed entry due to the shutdown of the building for the COVID -19 Pandemic. Hopefully we will all get the opportunity in the future as it looks stunning on the bank of the main canal.

Wonderful jewels displayed with the clothing these people wore. Very interesting. Not too crowded when we arrived but quickly filled up. Free audio guide. A bit irritating because it’s a hand held device which is triggered by touching sensors on the walls near the exhibits. That means one is constantly competing with anyone else trying to do the same. Then struggling to see the exhibit being described. Also - the sensors are too high for use by wheelchair visitors. Thoughtless.

Today we saw the jewels-expo and the outsider-art as well. The first one posh and elegant, the second one raw. A very interesting combo, so go for it!
The main expo is quite busy, the other one almost empty, but as interesting!

This temporary exhibition in the Hermitage showcases a sublime collection of often quite huge group portraits of 17th century influential citizens. Nicely augmented with a present day intervention: portraits of notable 17th century historical citizens of color, personalized by present day celebrities such as rapper Taifun and football player Gullit. Very nicely done!

This was a really amazing experience.Early in the morning we nearly had the place to ourselves. By midday things were more crowded. There is a well balanced mix of white marble and paintings. We enjoyed our coffee with pastry in the (self service) restaurant and visited the museum shop.
You may also enjoy the exhibition in the opposite side of the museum ‘the Portraits of the Golden Age
