Noord-Holland, The Netherlands
The Hermitage Amsterdam is an art museum, a satellite of the Hermitage museum in Saint Petersburg, Russia, housed in a 17th-century palace overlooking the Amstel river.
Opened in 2009 in the former Amstelhof, a large neoclassical building, the Hermitage Amsterdam houses temporary and semi-permanent exhibitions featuring works from the vast collection of the Hermitage Saint Petersburg, often organized in collaboration with International and Dutch institutions.
The exhibitions are usually dedicated to the cultural, artistic and historical relationship between western Europe and Russia.
The Hermitage Amsterdam also hosts art education programs and workshops, with a special attention to children, and also organizes music concerts and special events.
The museum includes a study center, a shop, and a restaurant.
The Hermitage Amsterdam is fully accessible to people with disabilities.
