Press conference

Dear Member of the Press,

In anticipation of the opening of Hermitage Amsterdam, we will hold a Press Conference for the new exhibition Dining with the Tsars. Fragile beauty from the Hermitage on Tuesday 2 September 2014, from 10.30 a.m.

The Hermitage Amsterdam’s fifth anniversary exhibition Dining with the Tsars. Fragile beauty from the Hermitage opens on 6 September 2014. Eight magnificent porcelain and creamware services from the collection of the Hermitage in St Petersburg will be exhibited in a setting that conveys what the balls and banquets of the Tsar’s court were like.

Accreditation is required for all journalists planning to attend the Press Conference. Accreditation applications can be on here on this website page. If you have any questions, please send an email to or telephone +31 (0) 20 530 8755.

The deadline for accreditation applications is 28 August 2014. Confirmation letters will be e-mailed around 28 August and will include more information.

We hope that you will be able to join us for this important cultural event and look forward to welcoming you.
