Fodor's Review

Taking advantage of 300 years of historical links between Amsterdam and St. Petersburg, Professor Mikhail Piotrovsky, director of the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and Ernst Veen, director of the Nieuwe Kerk museum in Amsterdam, chose this spot on the Amstel for a new outpost. In 2009, the final refurbishment stage of the former home for the elderly Amstelhof was complete, with huge, high white interiors and smaller side rooms connected by long unadorned corridors.

The allocation for exhibition space is actually much smaller than you might imagine from the outside (or the entry price), but the size of the shop and café are not. However, when the material on show is of the highest quality, this matters not a bit. Children under 17 are admitted free.
