This museum is amazing. We spent 6 hours there and didn't see everything. Highlights included the state throne room and the room with gold walls. The artwork is from all over the world, from all periods. It's a fantastic collection.

The museum features some three MILLION items. Technically if you want to see them all, it will take about nine years in a row. The absolute must see highlight of St. Petersburg.

It is difficult to describe all treasures - pictures from Leonardo to Picasso, jewellry and gold from aincient times, sculptures, etc, Buildings themselves belong to the best examples of baroque and classic architecture. At least half a day - for quick visit.

Really enjoyed our visit. Has a huge number of things to see. It would take a few hours (or days) to see everything, we just went to the highlights. It was our favorite thing to do in St. Petersburg.
