Hermitage Amsterdam Museum- Sister to St. Petersburg

Basic information
Date of placement

New Amsterdam Travel Video- The Hermitage Amsterdam is a world-class museum that is well known to locals but not on the radar of many tourists. Which is a shame because their collections and exhibits are always impressive and their Amstel River location is very pretty and convenient. It's collections are inspired by the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia and often shares part of their collection here in Amsterdam. This connection has a history dating back to the 1600s when Czar Peter the Great lived and studied in Amsterdam. In our video we highlight two of museum's current exhibits: Treasury!- masterpieces from the Russian collection; and Dutch Portraits from the Golden Age: an impressive gathering of huge, group portraits from the 17th century on loan from both the Rijksmuseum and the Amsterdam Museum and hanging together for the first time. Tip: Also check out the museum's Outsider Art Museum; and try to find the Panorama Amsterdam- a 15 minute wide screen film presentation of the museum's history. Double Tip: exit on the far east side and stroll through the gated garden with huge trees, a reflection pool and the Dignita Hoftuin Restaurant which serves tasty tostis!
