This section of the Hermitage which houses French impressionists and post impressionists and more has been renovated and that design alone is worth a visit. Part of the collection was closed for rehanging when I was there but the visit was still marvellous. Tip: go...More

The General Staff Building is located adjacent to The Hermitage Museum and is a large building to visit. Facilities range from a very modern auditorium for use in promotional events to a myriad of older, refurbished corridors that lead to various galleries. You can easily...More

Compared to the adjacent Winter Palace, the number of visitors here are but a small fraction. It’s quite a relief and infinitely more pleasurable to spend two hours going through the galleries than jostling with noisy crowds next door. The complex in itself is dramatic...More

An unlikely venue for an art collection which spans four floors. We particularly enjoyed the very large impressionist collection which covers a number of rooms at the top of the building. We recommend starting at the top and working your way down as it can...More
