Curator-led HERMITAGE MUSEUM Tours
We are proud to offer Curator-led tours of the exceptional and vast collections of the famous St. Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum.
One of the largest, oldest and most prestigious museums in the world, The Hermitage Museum was founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great and has been open to the public since 1852. It is St. Petersburg's most popular visitor attraction, and is a must-see for all travelers to the city. The collections, of which only a small part is on permanent display, comprise over three million items, including the largest collection of paintings in the world.
A Tour of the enormous collections of the Hermitage led by a Museum Curator makes a big difference. You will be guided by a person of expert knowledge, familiar with the famous items of the collection and able to recount the fascinating stories of individual pieces, their acquisition by the Tsars, life in the Museum, evacuation during the World War II and restoration into the current and magnificent Hermitage Museum collection.
