A place not to be missed but leave lots of time as it's huge. You will probably not see it all in a day so plan ahead. Get a knowledgable guide too if you can.

only gorgeous and amazing. I so loved the Hermitage because of its history, content, curators and cats. The da Vincis are dull, the Caravaggios wicked, the Breguels in a corridor, almost abandoned are superb, the 20 c collection breathtaking. But these did not make the collection so special, it was the ambience, the history of how Catherine amassed such works,... More

Beautiful museum with fantastic art & history. They are very strict regarding young children watching us to the point of being uncomfortable so would recommend leaving this attraction if you have toddlers who like to explore! Also won't allow drinks to be taken in due to past vandalism. Enjoyed the visit but could have been a little more relaxed! Couldn't... More

Wow I believe it is under the 3 Top museums in Europe (Hermitage, Louvre and Prado). The collections are really great and the building is awesome. I've been there 4 times (whenever I'm in Petersburg) and even though I spent more than 10 hours in the museum I always discover something new.

A must visit place if you ever find yourself in St. Petersburg even if you are not a big art fan. There is more to this place than just paintings and sculptors, the building and rooms are just as stunning has the things that are being housed in them. Would advise if you can to do a guided tour as... More

Is one of the most fantastic things you would see in your life. You should go at least twice. I enjoy the visit very much as I like russian furniture. Don't miss the modern paintings from early 20th century and English painters.

We travelled to st petersburg as part of a tour and visited the hermitage and winter palace...and we were not disappointed. It was beautiful and everything has been so well maintained and looked after. Anything that needed to be refurbished or redecorated has been totally in-keeping with the building that you wouldnt know the difference. The rooms have been lvovingly... More
