I saw the Russian Museum and Benois Wing. The guide book made it sound like they were two separate museums, but they are all the same museum and only one admission charge. There is a little cafe. There was a lot to see here, from...More

The palace which houses this museum is a treasure in itself, with some beautifully decorated ceilings and one room given over to demonstrating how the palace used to be furnished. The art is the reason to visit, with many masterpieces from largely Russian artists, many...More

We almost found this museum by accident, but are so glad we didn't miss it. What an amazing collection of all-Russian art through the ages! Although we didn't have a guide, we stumbled across so many gorgeous and surprising items in almost every gallery.

We went to St. Peterburg focusing heavily on the Hermitage and some sites, so the visit to this museum was a real bonus. There was a special exhibit of Russian Avant Garde paintings, and it was splendid. European and some American Modernist painters/sculptors attract virtually...More

I do wish that Russian museums would accommodate international travelers by posting informational signs and exhibit information in more languages than Russian. It doesn’t have to be English, although most Euro travelers do use English as a common language.
