Is there a permanent collection at the Hermitage Amsterdam?
While the Hermitage Amsterdam offers a variety of beautiful temporary exhibitions, we do not possess a permanent art collection. Instead we organize exhibitions selected from the collections of the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg. These exhibitions can be viewed in the Hermitage Wing of the building (built in 1683). On the opposite side of the building, the Amsterdam Wing offers exhibitions of art selected from the Museum of the Mind | Dolhuys (Museum of the Mind | Outsider Art), and the Amsterdam Museum in tandem with the Rijksmuseum (the Portrait Gallery of the 17th Century). The Amsterdam Wing also features an impressive church hall, several historically reconstructed rooms, and the audio-visual presentation Panorama Amsterdam.
