Although the museum complex has more than 1000 rooms, we did it for less than 2 hours with kids. We knew ecxactly which rooms might be the most impressive for kids, took the map and went directly there, including Malakhitovaya komnata, Grand ball room, etc. Kids were not even tired and very inspired by the interiors and Imperiors lifestyle.

It goes without saying that The Hermitage has priceless pieces of art, what sets this museum apart from The Met and The Louvre is that the room themselves are pieces of art. Not a surprise given that it is a former palace but wow, you'll find yourself looking at the rooms and hallways as much as the art.

If you are in St. Petersburg and don't plan to visit the Hermitage, just go anywhere else and don't come back. This is one of the most important museums in the world. Beautiful surroundings, too, the very center of the city.

This museum is one of the largest art collections in the world so you will need a whole day. I went out of peak season and was still amazed at how busy it was, a must see!

No trip to the beautiful city of St. Petersburg would be complete without a visit to The Hermitage. Go early to avoid the crowds and you will be rewarded with viewings of priceless art and antiques, stunning opulence and grand gardens.

What an amazing place! I've been interested in the Russian monarchy for years and have read a number of their biographies, including the latest on Catherine the Great by Robert Massie. How incredible to be able to see where they lived in person up until 1904. We hired a very knowledgeable guide since we had only one day for our... More
