H’ART (formerly Hermitage) Museum Amsterdam

Amstel 51

1018 DR   Amsterdam


H’ART Amsterdam was formerly a branch of the Hermitage Museum of Saint Petersburg, Russia but recently cut those ties, hence the change of identity. Located on the banks of the Amstel river the museum is housed in the former Amstelhof, a classical style building from 1681.


Enjoy a cup of coffee and/or something sweet before or after your exhibition visit. The café-restaurant is on the first floor, right over the foyer. And you’re welcome to use it at any time – no tickets necessary. 

Courtyard garden

H’ART’s beautiful courtyard garden is the largest courtyard garden surrounded by a single building to be found in the city centre of Amsterdam. It used to be a bleach field, a place where laundry was left out to dry while the residents gardened and took care of the chickens. Now it is an oasis of tranquillity that anyone can enjoy, free of charge, whether under the old chestnut trees or on the lawns. If the weather is nice, the kiosk will be open and you can enjoy a lovely cup of tea or coffee, lunch, or a glass of wine on the terrace.
