Located on the Amstel in a beautiful classical building, the Hermitage Amsterdam operates in conjunction with the famous Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg. There are two permanent collections on display: one about Dutch–Russian relations, and the other about the history of the building Amstelhof, which dates back to 1681 and was formerly a retirement home operated by the state. The rest of the museum features temporary exhibitions, featuring works of celebrated artists like Van Gogh, Rubens, Van Dyck, Gauguin, Matisse, and others. There are weekly tours of the collections given in English on Sundays, and occasional concerts and films.
