“Hermitage Amsterdam”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Wonderful building and exhibitions. But recommend buying tickets for Van Gogh and/or Impressionists BEFORE going to the museum. Tickets can be bought in advance via internet, or at the Tourist Office in front of Centraal (as I did). Otherwise the queues are just horrendous, and involve standing in all weathers for ages.

only found out about the hermitage in amsterdam , by accident , was in dam Sq , and saw the church in the corner was advertising a warhol exhibit , which i read as exhibition hehe , a copy of a print of da vinci's last supper .
i got talking to the lady on the info desk , and thats where i found out about the hermitage .
the hermitage in st petersburgh has the 2nd best 19th and early 20th centenary art collections after paris in the world , and boy were we lucky .
the van gogh museum is closed , so the displays are at the hermitage , and they have tied together van gogh's late work , with an impressionists exhibition from the hermitage .
just mind blowing not having been to paris ( i know shameful living only 300km away hehe ) this was by far and away the best impressionist work i have seen , both museums were a tour de force .
sitting here now at 536 am writing this review 5 days latter thinking about what i saw , is still mind blowing .
by the way the hermitage side includes an informative display of what was happening through the 19th century and how impressionism came about
and the van gogh side has far more than just his late stuff

“The Big One's Sister”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

This museum is a sister museum to the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia but is much more accessible and much better for viewing the paintings. The audio tour is wonderful. The art is so well displayed that its appearance is greatly enhanced because of the excellent arrangements. Relatively small compared to its sister but wonderful. My wife actually enjoyed it more than the Russian museum and insists it is not to be missed if you are in Amsterdam.

Saw Vincent VanGogh and the Impressionist art exhibit. Ticket was €17.50. It took about 1 1/2 hours for the exhibits. It was crowded though.

“Get there early - enjoy the space”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We had MJK (national museum pass), arrived early and got to enjoy both Hermitage and Vincent exhibit . Fortunately we checked online since MJK pamphlet quoted 10a opening and actual opening is at 9a. If you have pass there is scanner in center if entrance hall so you can bypass any lines. Recommend starting with Hermitage exhibit to get history of peers and period. The Vincent film was informative. As we left lines and crowds were starting to build.
