Hermitage Amsterdam is a world-class museum that is well known to locals but not on the radar of many tourists.

History

This dependency of the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg is located in the former Amstelhof, a classical style building from 1681 that used to be one of the earliest old people's homes in the Netherlands. 400 women originally lived in the Amstelhof, all over the age of 50.
