We visited the Hermitage Museum from a cruise ship and, unfortunately, had but a short visit. This is truly one of the great museums of the world and has been extensively restored to its former glory. The short time we had was a tantalising glimpse into one of the great collections of the world and we wished that we could... More

This used to be the Winter Palace of the royal family. It has been rebuilt a number of times and was badly damaged in the early days of the revolution. However it has been well restored and the gold and precious artefacts and paintings have been assembled to tell the stories of the lives of the Tsars. Across the square... More

Really enjoyed it here. So much to see. The peacock clock is operational on a Wednesday morning from memory at 10am. Please check the time .Unfortunately we missed it and had to just enjoy the video. Beautiful exhibits and nice views in all directions. Nice to be able to take photos too

This was a well worth a visit. Takes a few hours to get around but it is well worth it if you are visiting St Petersburg.

This is a huge, world famous museum in the heart of the city. It can take days to see everything but we raced through it in 2 hours which gave us merely a taste of it. Highlights included 2 Da Vince canvas paintings and 1 small Michaelangelo sculpture. A must see if in this city.

One of the world's greatest museums, I was told that covering the entire complex would mean a walk of 22 kms. I could walk only 6, but I know I must go back for more. An outstanding collection, very well displayed.

Hours passed by without us realising until our feet told us it was time to go back to the hotel. One of the best museums I have ever visited
