The Museum is Magnificent and really huge! The Winter Palace now houses the Hermitage Museum. The original Winter Palace of Peter the Great is separate from this Museum complex and separate ticket is required. The Museum is one of the largest Museum in the world. Of the six buildings in the main museum complex, five—namely the Winter Palace, Small Hermitage, Old Hermitage, New Hermitage and Hermitage Theatre—are open to the public. One day is not enough to completely view all exhibits on display.

My visit was a dream come true. Take a ticket from the ticket machine outside and avoid the line. A ticket from the machine (750 rubles when I bought ib 2017) gives you access to the complete museum collection, which is in FIVE DIFFERENT BUILDINGS. Note, that the modern art collection is in the building across from the main museum building. If you spend more time in town, ask for a 2 day ticket. I didn't purchase it myself, but I believe there is a possibility.

The nicest museum I have ever seen. Very rich collection of art and historical things. If you're going to visit it be ready to spent whole day there. But even whole day would be little too see everything in there. Better to come before opening, as there is very large queqe there. We had been waited for 1 hour to buy ticket.

It is a magnificent world class museum. Wonderful art collection, beautiful rooms, halls, floors, ceilings, clocks, furniture. You can easily spend days here! The amazing peacock clock is a mechanical wonder, located in one of the most beautiful rooms of the palace and is worth to be seen in action. It will be wound up every Wednesday (usually at 7pm). People start gathering in front of the cage 15 min ahead, therefore if you want to see something you should come earlier than 7pm. We avoided the looooooong queue in front of the museum by buying the tickets on the internet.

Absolutely love it. I visited 5 times in my three weeks stay. Buy the tickets inside there are many machines to buy a ticket. Much more quicker then waiting in the line for at least 2 hours. Definitely not expensive, only $15 to visit such a historic and stunning palace! In Australia an entry to a botanical garden is even more expensive... All history, big names, I sat for hours in front of Monet... If I could, I would go there every day! Lovely, helpful staff, and very good security. I also loved that if you went somewhere and was carrying very heavy bags and coats that we were able to hand them over to a 'closet' like section in the front and they would stay secure and safe. Never, ever like this in Australia!
