Don't try to observe everything on one day. It's so big museum and there are a lot of famous Russian paintings there. Audio guide - minimum must have, but better - take a personal museum assistant.

Unusual and exensive collection of Russian art. You can see the influences of 18th, 19th & 20th century European masters but informed by a Russian tradition. The palace and grounds are standouts.

Yes there is a cloak-room, and they will store small luggage. I'm not sure if they'll accept suitcases or larger bags. Didn't see any.
