Depending on the time of your visit, you can immerse yourself in the world of the famous Silk Road. The Hermitage is one of the world’s most famous museums, founded by Catherine the Great in the 18th century. The Amsterdam branch opened in 2009, located on the banks of the River Amstel, and with a rotating temporary exhibition that changes every 6 months.
See the current exhibition, the “Spanish Art” exhibition (Winter 2015/16 - Summer 2016) that tells the story of the evolution of Spain from the 15th to 19th centuries. The Hermitage St. Petersburg was the first museum outside Spain to open a gallery devoted solely to Spanish art, and the diverse collection includes works of applied art, such as majolica and tapestries, as well as paintings that include the masterpieces “The Apostles Peter and Paul” by El Greco, “The Lunch” by Velázquez and Goya’s “Portrait of the Actress Antonia Zárate.”
“Greek and Scythian Gold” (Summer 2016 - Winter 2016/17) explores the peaceful interaction of 2 ancient cultures; the nomadic Scythians and Greek colonists. The Scythians and Greeks encountered each other on the northern coast of the Black Sea, where the Greeks began settling in the 7th century BCE. A mutually beneficial relationship was established from the start, trading grain for gold. See stunning treasures of jewelry and paintings, and learn the dramatic tale of the discovery of the Scythian tombs.
The Hermitage collection of “Dutch Masters” arrives in Autumn 2017-Spring 2018, and will feature many masterpieces by Rembrandt. Then, it’s the turn of “European Neoclassicism” (Spring 2018 - Winter 2018/19), exploring the Neoclassical movement in Europe, with relics from antiquity that were sources of inspiration.
Explore the world of “Catherine the Great” (Winter 2018/19 - Summer 2019), on the occasion of the Hermitage Amsterdam’s 10th anniversary, and see a compelling exhibition about the life and art collections of Russia’s longest-ruling female leader.
Finally, “Jewels from the Hermitage Treasure Gallery” (Summer 2019 - Winter 2019/20) is a festive jewelry exhibition featuring pieces from the Treasure Gallery of the Hermitage St. Petersburg. Admire gems of European applied art, such as vases, tableware, table decorations, snuffboxes, mirrors, and furniture.
