By far one of if not the most impressive collection of art in the world. A must see when in St. Petersburg. To think of all of the artistic genius gathered under one roof is simply incomprehensible. A true treasure in the city.

First let me say I was not a normal visitor to the Hermitage- I was a guest of the museum in a program for art professionals for a two week program- so I was there daily for 2 weeks and saw more that I can remotely convey here. The main striking theme- The Royal Russians where the original "shopaholics" with... More

I visited the Hermitage State Museum on an afternnon excursion off the CMV cruise ship Marco Polo. You will probably have two guides - both of whom may be Russian but they speak English very well. The Museum Rooms are splendid. There are good clean toilets available near where you are asked to leave heavy coats. You will probably be... More

I took the guided tour and was so interested that I went back two days later to explore on my own. This is a must see, worth every moment.

Totally mind blowing. We have history in uk but this is something else. History. Culture. Pride. Visited St Petersburg on a cruise and did 2 full days of very well organised trips. We spent a few hours and saw only a fraction. One of a very few places I would revisit.

I have been to the Hermitage a few times. Each time there seems to be something I have missed from a previous trip!! This is another MUST SEE while in St Petersburg. I spent about 7 hours there on my first trip with a Russian Friend. She was from Moscow and had never been there either. The 7 hours is... More

Actually entering and touring the Hermitage was an amazing visit into history. Like many sights of great expectation, the Hermitage was bigger than life and awesome. Our guide, Olga, made certain we saw the top priority paintings and artwork as we toured this site for one day only. Over three million items displayed in what is actually six historic buildings...
