The sheer size of it alone dominating the square is impressive. It faces the Hermitage Museum's back entrance so one can visit the museum and then enjoy the outdoors by strolling along the square. Must see when in St. Petersburg.

The most beautiful collection of art and superb setting. The redevelopment of the Carlo Rossi classical style building is very imaginative with a stylishly modern entry built within the frame of the old courtyard. The collections of impressionist and post impressionist art are beyond description...More

Very nice small museum. It has the Impresionist collection of the Hermitage. It is not very crowded and it has a beautiful collection.

1500 and what a great time to come. Quiet, near empty galleries and an amazing collection, especially the Impressionist paintings. Staff weren't as friendly as the main Palace building but the staff in the cafe were brilliant and the food excellent. Don't miss it.

Quite a nice venue for observation and experience if you happen to like that period. Not my favorite art, but a great museum to experience.
