It caught us by surprise that the Hermitage Museum has such an extensive collection of modern and contemporary art, and they are all hidden in the General Staff Building! Many people would only visit the main building, which we went and were an eye opener....More

State Hermitage did great job, updating this building. Building architecture is very unusual and a lot of interesting ideas were implemented. Exposition is great since all painting was moved from 3rd floor of Hermitage there.

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

What a great place, and I mean great. Lots of floors of amazing art. We just chose one floor, the main impressionist and post impressionist floor and spent 2.5 hours there. Could have easily visited another day if we had the time. There is a...More

The conversion of Carlo Rossi's General Staff building to an Hermitage extension is truly impressive with circulation spaces created in over and around the old courtyards. Use of materials is exemplary and all this before you even get to the collections. The impressionist and post...More

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.

We went up several flights of stairs to get to it. I don’t recall what floor but I used the map they give you as a reference. The impressionist exhibit was worth the visit. They had virtual reality history tour in the main... More
