Glorious art collections belonged to the Imperial family are exhibited there. Later they were preserved from destruction by the museum staff during the Second World War.

The 15th to 18th century masterpieces of the world’s prominent artists like Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Veronese, Tiepolo, Tintoretto and many others alongside with the rich Impressionism and Post-Impressionism collections expect you in the Hermitage museum. Please note that the Hermitage theatre can only be visited in the evening if you have a ticket to attend a show there.
