Hermitage Amsterdam

Amstel 51, Amsterdam, 1018 EJ

The Basics

The Hermitage Amsterdam opened in 2009. It’s housed in a former home for the elderly, known as Amstelhof. The imposing building with its 335-foot-wide (102-meter-wide) frontage on the Amstel River dates back to the late 17th century. In 2007 a 2-year project transformed the space to accommodate works of art that belong to the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.

Past exhibitions at the museum have covered the Russian court of the 19th century and the pioneers of modern art from Matisse to Kandinsky. For those interested in viewing the building’s exterior, Amstel river cruises pass by regularly, as do select Segway tours. The hop-on hop-off bus stops nearby, and some city passes offer discount admission.

An Important Perspective of Amsterdam
Very relaxed tour. Informative and enjoyable. Easy to find right outside the Anne Frank House. It’s quite a bargain as they serve you drinks for free and put out cheese trays. The servers, Tamsin and Lucia were always there with a beer or a pour of wine. And Captain Deiderick likes to chime in with some good jokes.
