  • The Hermitage Amsterdam exhibits a collection of the great State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg with supplementary programs and workshops for children and families
  • With regularly changing exhibitions, this dynamic museum is always up to something new
  • Located in the leafy Plantage district, after your visit you can pop into other museums or wander through the canalside parks, and grab a drink with locals by the waterside terraces


The Hermitage Amsterdam is the Dutch branch of the Russian Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. This beautiful museum is home to over 3m works of art and has regularly changing exhibitions. Sitting on a canal, this former nursing home also features an excellent cafe and a ton of educational activities for children and adults. A day here will not just educate, it will inspire and enlighten as well.

The Hermitage was founded 250 years ago by Catherine the Second - who philosopher Voltaire called the "sparkling star of the North". Known as "Catherine the Great", she was a passionate art lover. Her acquisition of 225 paintings in Berlin was the genesis of the Russian State Museum.

Close collaboration between the Hermitage in St. Petersburg and the Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam led to the unique situation we have today: a Dutch branch of the Russian State Museum (!)

And so, in fewer than 96 weeks - this former nursing home (and UNESCO World Heritage site) was turned into a museum for artwork from Russia.

With masterpieces from their permanent collection and regularly rotating exhibitions on display - plus opportunity to put your inspiration right to work in one of the many workshops, the Hermitage a perfect destination for the art lover and the aspiring artist alike.

Current exhibition: Catharina the Greatest

18 June - 15 January

250 years after Catherine the Great founded the Hermitage in St. Petersburg (as the result of a massive art purchase) the Hermitage in Amsterdam now pays a tribute to this remarkable woman. This rich exhibition tells her story in more than 300 items that have been flown in from the Russian Hermitage. Dresses, jewelry, cameos, and masterpieces from its vast art collection are on display from June 18 in the Hermitage Amsterdam.

Everything is well organised, curated and all in all an excellent experience. I was a little disappointed in the range of the collection from St Petersburg.
