This is a good museum but it is probably the most expensive one I have ever visited and I have been in a few. At £22 to see the whole place I think it is extortionate, it's around twice the price of the Rijksmuseum with nowhere near as much to see. There was one bonus in that we were there... More

The Romanov exhibit was very interesting, as was the Dutch Golden Era exhibit. Went on a Saturday so it was a bit crowded, often having to squeeze around people to read the signs or activate the audio tour, but overall was a good experience. There is a cafe in the museum that seemed quite overpriced to me, so we ended... More

Don't miss this exhibition. It is beautifully curated (although the rooms a very small and can become crowded). They have on display many personal effects of the Romanov family including love letters between the Czar and Czarina which were, to my surprise, written in English. The photos, the clothes, the film clips, the glassware, original documents are interesting and it... More

Great museum with captivating exhibits: "1917. Romanovs & Revolution, The End of Monarchy", "Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age", and "China" ("Passion, Religion and power in Dutch and Chinese Outsider Art") -- well documented, beautifully presented, instructive, and visually striking... A real treat for the eyes and the mind!

The exhibits in this museum are very well curated. We came to take a quick look and ended up staying three hours! They do a nice job mixing it up with Dutch classics and a thoughtful and well structured visiting collections from the St. Petersburg flagship museum. When we visited there was an exhibition tracing the fall of the Romanov... More

This museum gave a good insight into the city of Amsterdam, especially the so-called Golden Age. The Hermitage also had an in-depth presentation of the fall of the Russian Empire.

I visited this museum to see the exhibition on the Romanovs, it's brilliant. The only problem I had was we ran out of time. We allowed two hours and we didn't manage to get around the whole exhibition so give yourself plenty of time. It's definitely worth a visit.

We visited the last Romanov exposition in the Hermitage and were very pleased with the amount of new info, pictures, films of the era of the Russian revolution. The exposition was well done, in a very clear way, good lay-out, audio and narrating excellent. A must.

Thank Leon W

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
