This museum has unique objects not available anywhere else in the world: fully assembled throne room, royal dining rooms, fully decorated guest rooms, decorative art from semi-pressures stones, and many more in addition to outstanding collection of art from all over the world. Cannot miss it for any reason.

This is a must see for anyone visiting Saint Petersburg. Be warned it is incredibly popular with the local citizens too and on public holidays the queues to enter can stretch for a mile. Once inside though it is worth it. Fantastic art and furniture collections and incredible displays of arms and armour

This is a must do if you are in St Petersburg and if not, a reason to visit. Every Room is full of treasures. It is impossible to see everything in a single visit, so i would recommend visiting at least twice. I visited in December and it seemed very quiet, i was sometimes in rooms alone. Don't miss the...

To visit St. Petersburg and not visit the Hermitage, it's like to go to Paris without seeing the Louvre and fly to Rome and not visit the Vatican. They are similar and yet different, but they all share the splendor of colors, gold and the silence of history. Come to the Hermitage, at least for an hour or two, but... More

They also have those small handheld things for the self tours which I saw people using. But we had a tour guide- this place is huge. Get someone who knows what they are doing- It can be pretty crowded and also you can get lost. Not a lot of places to eat inside and the coat room was very very... More

This museum was a palace of Tsar called winter palace. Beautiful and amazing building with a lot of stuff to show to you. The stuff that fascinating me much is the collecting of painting and statue. if you stand here, you do not go anywhere to see mummy, Leonardo da Vinci's Painting about baby Jesus and the famous stolen kisses...

A huge amount of art by some of the old masters. Very busy so difficult to see everything you want. Of all the palaces in St Petersberg this is the least impressive but only because Peterhof and St Catherines are so stunning. Didn't have time to look around outside.

Yes, I really do! Hate it … I mean. It is so beautiful, so rich of art and masterpieces and the palace is just so marvelous that I never know whether to look at the collections, the furniture or what else …. to the point that I feel overwhelmed and end up losing my concentration and see nothing at all!...
