The Hermitage museum was the winter palace of the Romanov dynasty, quite some town house this, destroyed in WW2 and rebuilt to its former glories. You can see why there was a revolution here, lavish and ostentatious don't come close! The building is a brilliant setting as a museum, collections of busts Roman, Greek and others to rival if not...

Take a whole day to see this great museum with thousands of historical items. Check the opening timing and days before you go as museum is closed on every Monday.

It would take years to see it all, but it is worth spending a day to see the bits you would like the best. State rooms and priceless treasures. Unforgettable.

take at least a day to visit this museum. It's almost impossible to describe the sheer amount there is to see here. Reasonably priced but you must pay the extra 300 rubles each to visit the diamond room. That was definitely the highlight in my opinion.

It is worth every minute you spend there ... I have never seen such a nice museum of ancient arts and treasures! The waiting lines in summer months are long ( weekdays and winter months are less crowded ) so do an online reservation first to get in quickly ! And bring plenty of time ... you will need it...

Its a really grand and magnificent museum. If one would want to go through it thoroughly a few days might be required. But half a day is all right for quick run through.

The museum was kept so nicely that no one can even touch the walls which were gold plated. The staff and the guides at the museum are very friendly. I will suggest everyone to go and visit this place.
