This vast beautiful building houses an enormous amount af art which is spread out. You need to grasp the size of the museum before you start a visit as you could spend days in here and have blisters on your feet! The highlight of St. Petersburg.

Collection is outstanding. One of the largest art museums world wide so plan to spend a lot of time here. 4 hours for a quick look. They have moved the Matisse collection and plan to move the impressionists to a separate museum across the plaza. (thus more admissions collected). Both collections very worthwhile, even if you must pay additional. Having... More

This museum is vast. We were in St Petersburg on a cruise & the Hermitage was part of our tour with Alla Tours. We spent 2 hours walking around just looking in a few of the hundreds of rooms. The quality & selection of art, sculptures etc is wonderful. I think 2 hours is about right as after that you... More

It was our first visit to Russia and we were in Saint Petersburg as part of our cruise. We were there for two days and Hermitage museum was part of the guided tour. The museum is massive, outstanding and is of great architecture. It has almost 3 million items on display. We spent around 3 hours there which wasn't enough... More

You could spend all day here and not see much at all. There is so much to see there. Get a tour guide and get them to take you to the highlights otherwise you will get lost in the crowds and walk around aimlessly.

We spent several hours at the Hermitage Museum this afternoon and only scratched the surface. If you spent just 1 minute at each of the 2.7 million items in the museum it would take over 5 years to see them all. So, since we didn't have 5 years to wonder around the halls, we could only see a few things... More
