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!

5.0/ 5stars

We have had the good fortune to travel a lot. But i have never seen anything like this place. Take 3 amazing palaces combine it with 6 world famous museums and add the artwork from the Vatican, put it in a building half a mile square, and this is what you would have. Absolutely incredible. Art work was all famous names I remember from school. Sculptures, historical artifact from Greece and Egypt that rival any museum in those countries. People waited in line for hours in the rain to get in. WOW. Would take days to see it all.

Nice copy, but as nice as the original... Growing up, I had always dreamed of visiting this former palace/ museum because of of a book I owned as a child about the wonders of the new world. It looked like it came right out of a fairy tale in those pictures. Later, I read the story of its construction along with that of the entire city of St-Petersburg. Apparently, Peter the Great decided to build a city that could rival the likes of Paris, London and Vienna to his honor. Understandably, the city's architecture was heavily influenced by that of those western European cities. Although I found St-Pete very beautiful, I personally felt that it just looked like an attempt to "copy" Paris or Vienna. Unfortunately, a copy can never be as good as the original and I really noticed that there. This Hermitage Museum/ Winter Palace confirms the pattern. Indeed, although I found it beautiful overall, I couldn't help but notice that it looked like a cheaper version of the Palace of Versailles. Besides, I noticed that the building wasn't as well preserved as I thought it would be. Every here and there I would notice small cracks or chipping paint on walls, humidity stains etc. This didn't fit the fairy-tale image I had from my childhood. Nevertheless, it was a very pleasing visit. The palace/museum is incredibly vast and every new room you step into feels like its own new magical universe. t is easy to be transported into the grandeur of that Russian imperial era. However, I'd say you'll definitely need at least 3 to 4 hours to really enjoy it...

Amazing place. We spent 3 hours there but could have spent the entire day. Great displays, well set out. A great collection of variety of art.
