...it was crowded with cruise liner groups and the lighting was not terribly good. Otherwise a really impressive collection.

There is no way you can see the entire palace in a few house. Our guide commented that after 2 hours of looking at art, there can become an overload. She showed us about 20 exquisite pieces that I will remember...

The outside looked amazing & the inside was magical, every room was beautiful, and then the paintings, Leonardo davinci, Rembrandt , Monet , van gough, to name a few. Very large place lots of exploring the different rooms & the staircase was amazing. I'm so glad I went here.

Recently visited St. Petersburg for two days. The Hermitage is a sight to behold and beautiful art and architecture all around you. It was incredibly crowded but I did go in August at the height of tourist season but it was worth it.

The depth and breath of the collections of art, furniture and artifacts are astounding. Displays and museum spaces are extremely well done. If possible allow 3 days to explore this incredible museum.
