For the first time ever thirty enormous 17th century group portraits from the Amsterdam Museum and the Rijksmuseum have been brought together and displayed impressively in the Portrait Gallery of the 17th Century (Hermitage Amsterdam).


The elite citizens of the Netherlands represent a united front standing shoulder to shoulder like brothers and sisters, as a collective they illustrate the citizenship that is typical of the Netherlands and in essence reflect our modern day standards and social interaction. The portraits are people from different backgrounds and classes yet they are allied, the answer to why the Dutch strongly believe in equality and freedom is hanging on the walls of the Hermitage Museum for you to discover.

The audio tour for the exhibition is included in the ticket price and available in English, Dutch, German, French, Spanish and Italian
