Museum offers reason to book hostels in Amsterdam

People planning to book hostels in Amsterdam this winter may be interested to learn that the Hermitage Amsterdam recently celebrated its first 100 days since opening.

The museum has seen over 360,000 visitors walk through its halls since the official opening weekend in June and is now established as one of the Dutch city's most popular attractions.

According to the Netherlands Tourist Board, the Hermitage looks set to maintain its status as an essential part of many holidaymakers' trips to Amsterdam with its forthcoming Pioneers of Modern Art exhibition.

Taking place from 6th March 2010 until 17th September 2010, the exhibition features famous masterpieces from artists such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Kees van Dongen.

"Two famous Russian collectors, Morozov and Shchukin, dared to buy these works, at the time considered revolutionary, with the paint still wet in some cases," the tourist board states.

Hermitage Amsterdam is a dependency of the Hermitage Museum of St Petesburg and is situated at the Amstelhof, a classical-style building that dates back to the 1680s.
