Hermitage-Amsterdam welcomes millionth visitor
Amsterdam, 16 August 2010
Last weekend, the Hermitage-Amsterdam received its millionth visitor.
Since opening on 20 July 2009, the museum has now welcomed one million
visitors and guests. A recent survey showed that 25% of visitors to the exhibition
Matisse to Malevich came from outside the Netherlands.
This past year, the Hermitage for Children has also been a popular destination:
tens of thousands of Amsterdam schoolchildren combined a visit to the museum
with an educational programme. The current exhibition, Matisse
to Malevich, will run until 17 September. On 18 September, a major
exhibition will open on the life of a great Greek hero
