The Hermitage Amsterdam is the only European satellite of the famous Hermitage in St Petersburg in Russia, and a must see when you visit Amsterdam (The Netherlands). The museum is housed in a fascinating old building, Amstelhof, and stages excellent exhibitions. This guide offers you all the information you need to know before visiting Amsterdam.
Until the end of 2016 you will be able to enjoy a spectacular Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age: over thirty very large 17th century group portraits that can be regarded as the artistic siblings of Rembrandt’s Nightwatch. Due to their enormous proportions the portraits are rarely on view, let alone shown together in a single exhibition. The works come from the collections of the Amsterdam Museum as well as the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
