Most vistors coming to Saint Petersburg visit the Hermitage Museum, some do it twice or even more times. There is plenty to see and do. This art gallery is known all across the world. In 2013 and 2016 the Hermitage Museum was voted to be the best world art gallery by Trip Advisor users. 225 paintings that had been acquired by Catherine the Great in 1764 turned into a huge art collection that comprises now more than 3 million works of art and objects located in 5 principle central buildings.
During the Hermitage Museum tour you will visit reception halls of the Winter Palace, which is a part of the Hermitage museum complex, and the art gallery itself located in buildings of the Small, Big and New Hermitage.
The museum presents exhibits of almost any culture found in the world. Over centuries these artifacts and treasures were collected from different parts of the planet. However, the Hermitage is primarily known for its Western European art collection including works of world famous artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, Rafael, Diego Velasquez, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Rubens, Monet, Picasso and many others. Our Hermitage highlight tour is a unique tour offering you "an early entry high-season admission" (before the museum opens to the general public) and includes a concise overview of all the principle museum highlights.
Certainly a half day tour cannot cover even the smallest part of the Hermitage Museum collection. If you would like to book a private tour of the museum, you will have a chance to choose the collections and halls you would like to examine in more detail. You can also add a tour of the Diamond or Golden rooms to your private tour.
