Having been a couple of times to the Hermitage in St Petersburg I was expecting a modicum of splendid displays and/or artefacts. What a disappointment. Fine if you are interested in fine china and table settings possibly give it a go for an enigmatic short Russian dance film set in the period of the Tzars which kind of tries to... More

At an admission of 15 Euros like most museums there is very little to see. I found it one giant waste. They had an exhibit on the Czars dinner wear. Pretty but the exhibit is small and not worth the price.

This is an impressive building and inside you get a real sense of how the Tsars lived. If you take a canal cruise you can stop off at this museum and then jump back on the cruise.

Great exhibit of the Imperial Russian dinnerware. But the admission charge of Euro 15 is high. Don't forget to check out the rest of the museum other than the special exhibit.

It wasn't inexpensive, and the building isn't impressive by any means, but the worst part was being required to leave my purse with the coatcheck. I forgot that my passport was in a pocket of the purse and so didn't have my ID with me to pay for some cards at the gift shop (less than 20 Euros), and they... More

Wow, what a display of table wear: I expected it to be opulent having belonged to the Tsars of Russia, but it was like nothing I had seen before. I have visited many palaces, castles and country estates on my journeys over the years, but these dinner services and all of the splendour that went with them was truly fascinating... More

The exhibit rotates regularly with items loaned from Russia. The current exhibit is about entertaining by Russian royalty with displays of the elegant, elaborate table settings. I was fascinated, but my husband was bored. Be sure you know what exhibit is displayed before going to the museum.

We saw dining with the Tsars. At 15 euros per adult for a few bits of a handful of dining services, some descriptive boards, an unintelligible 5 min video and lots of empty corridors and stairwells not good value. Especially compared with the same price at the Rijksmuseum which gives you hours of extensive art, craft and pottery.

The Hermitage always puts on a good show. I went to the exhibition 'Dining with the Tsars' yesterday on its opening day. While a display of crockery may not be everyone's idea of a wild time, the exhibition is put together so beautifully, it is hard not to like. The central area contains six or more tables set out in... More
