Amsterdam Museum in the Hermitage
The Amsterdam Museum has taken residence at the Hermitage since 9 March 2022. During a large-scale renovation of the monumental Burgerweeshuis (Civil Orphanage), the Amsterdam Museum will find its temporary home here. This includes a completely new range of exhibitions, public programs and children's activities.
Amsterdam Museum wing
From March 2022 until 2025, the Amsterdam Museum will present an entirely new collection in the Hermitage's Amsterdam Museum Wing, which will not only present the traditional history of Amsterdam, but also offer plenty of space for opposing views and lesser-known and more recent histories of the city. In addition, alternating exhibitions will feature the city's residents and enthusiasts who will be able to show 'their Amsterdam'. The annex of the Amsterdam Museum in the Hermitage will show visitors, with familiar objects from the collection and new or less familiar works, that there is no single history of the city.
Panorama Amsterdam: a living history of the city
Panorama Amsterdam reveals the many facets of the city. What are the foremost characteristics that define Amsterdam? And has it always been that way? How will the city continue to develop? By connecting stories from the past, present, and future, a broader perspective of the city emerges: Amsterdam, in all its dimensions.
Over 250 objects are displayed here, giving the visitor a multifaceted picture of the many histories of the city of Amsterdam: classic icons from the city's collection by Lingelbach and Rembrandt, but also emerging artists such as Raquel Haver, Natasja Kensmil and Brian Elstak.
There is also room for smaller exhibitions that tell the stories of the city today. From Welcome to the Northside to Colonial Stories and Collecting the City, which change every six months and make room for new narrators and new stories from the city of Amsterdam.
Outdoor exhibitions will be on display in the courtyard, free of charge. The Amsterdam Museum will also organize an extensive education and public program in its temporary home at the Hermitage.
