Make it a safe visit to the Hermitage Amsterdam together
In the current circumstances we are all required to follow new rules. We are counting on your co-operation. Do you have a cold or fever? Or do you live with someone who has a cold or fever? Unfortunately we cannot grant you access then. We look forward to seeing you back when you are healthy.

Corona measures at the Hermitage Amsterdam
Extensive corona measures have been implemented throughout the museum so that visitors can have a safe, one on one experience with the artworks. The one way viewing route, marked out viewing areas, ‘passing bays’ and designated resting points, allow visitors to maintain an optimal distance of 1.5 m from one another.

  • Admission for online ticket holders only, book your timeslot in advance
  • Groups: only couples and households, maximum 2–5 persons
  • Exhibition set up for optimal 1.5 m distance
  • One way traffic: follow the route indicated
  • Audio tour available by app

  • Do you have a cold or fever? We look forward to seeing you back when you are healthy 
  • Take care of each other!

Entrance and floor plan
For your own safety and that of others, the Hermitage has implemented an adapted viewing route. The entrance of the museum has been moved to Nieuwe Keizersgracht 1, around the corner from the Amstel. The Amstel side is an exit only. Upon entry, you must follow the directions in the building. First, you are led to a scanning point to scan your online tickets. Then past the lockers, should you wish to stow your jacket and/or bag. The route towards the exhibition has been adapted to begin via the first floor. There is a special route for the less-abled; please ask our staff for assistance. Soon you can download the floor plan on our website in preparation for your visit
