Obviously, I did not read enough about the museum before my visit. The building itself is quite plain, nicely renovated but very plain. And there are just exhibits, not a collection. Dining With the Tsars but very small exhibit, just china patterns. Portrait Gallery of Golden Age was more interested exhibit because of great curating. Not friendly at all for... More

Housed in a renovated building a great display. We were luck enough to have a private tour of the current Dining with the Tsars display.

On our recent trip to Amsterdam, we dropped by the Hermitage to see the Czar's dining service. Got to admit these Royals ate on fine stuff. The exhibition from the St Pertersburg Hermitage collection was well worth a visit. The museum offers new exhibits every few weeks. Check it out!

I absolutely loved the Dining with the Tsars exhibit, and can understand the reluctance to check one's purse. HOWEVER, there are options . . . the coat check person will provide a clear plastic bag for your wallet, so you can check your purse and carry your important documents . . . or, use one of the self-service lockers where...

The 330 year old building serves since 2009 as a dependance of the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. There is a permanent exhibition and there are rotating exhibitions. The present one shows eight services the czars used to show off when having a banquet or a ball. The set-up is tasteful and instructive. Before visiting do some homework and have a... More

Really enjoyed this museum but the current exposition, Dining with the Tsars, is quite small. Very interesting though and well presented, you get a real feel for the experience!

...didn't quite do it for me and I'm not sure why. They had 5 major table displays and explained exquisitely about each and I enjoyed it a lot..perhaps it was the 15 Euro entry charge ?

Exits appear to change regularly. We had "Dinner with the Tzars". It was beautiful. Not to crowded, flowed nicely, didn't take too long to see. No bags were allowed in this exhibit.

We had an unpleasant experience trying to visit the Hermitage and its Dining with the Tsars exhibition in September. I was told after obtaining our tickets that I must check my purse in the lobby before entering the exhibition area! We were tourists more than 5000 km from home. My purse contained my wallet with my cash, debit card, credit... More

Linked with the Hermitage in St Petersburg, the exhibition was "Dining with the Tsars" and was an awesome display of fine tableware and some fascinating insights into life in the upper echelons of Russian nobility and royalty. Not a large display and I was a little surprised there wasn't some permanent exhibits from Russian vaults.Definitely for adults only The building... More
