The museum is very good, the collection is unique, but the exposition is out of the ordinary. It seems that the main goal of the museum’s management is not to show but to preserve. So they try. Turnstiles are very ““ pleased. ”And the signaling...More

The Hermitage is a major reason one should visit St Petersburg. The museum was a palace so this is a big part of the story of the place. We loved the Rembrandt paintings as well the peacock clock. One could spend days there and only...More

A must when visiting St. Petersburg! An incredible place with so many different things to look at. To think that the place was for one family makes you wonder. The exibited objects from all over the world and the different rooms in one place

Nothing prepares you for the splendours on the Winter Palace. It is massive and packed with treasures at every turn . If you spend 1 minute at each item it will take 7 years to see everything .

You could spend days going through this Museum, The rich history represented there is beyond comprehension. Hire a guide it is worth it. The gold room has so much to see it gets boring. Unbelievable how close you can get to the art work.

Plan,plan and plan some more. If you can get a map of the Hermitage and plan what you want to see especially if you have one day or less. Photos don’t do it justice so think about getting one of their DVDs.

If you have travelled a bit and seen many places in France and England etc you may think a palace is a place. To a certain extent that is true, but the Russian palaces have a different charm and colour to European ones. This is...More

The reputation preceded it, but it was absolutely deserved. There is a huge amount to see, so decide in advance what you are interested in. We looked mainly at the rooms and Russian culture. Don’t miss the art collection over the road at the staff...More

Apologies for the mix up in my reply. The Hermitage is wonderful and I wish we had two days instead of one. Sorry not sure whether you can visit on consecutive or separate days but they should be able to give an answer... More

Yes, and especially if you spend your time across the square at the Impressionist or Modern museum.
