Very nice small museum. It has the Impresionist collection of the Hermitage. It is not very crowded and it has a beautiful collection.

1500 and what a great time to come. Quiet, near empty galleries and an amazing collection, especially the Impressionist paintings. Staff weren't as friendly as the main Palace building but the staff in the cafe were brilliant and the food excellent. Don't miss it.

Quite a nice venue for observation and experience if you happen to like that period. Not my favorite art, but a great museum to experience.

We started our Hermitage day at the General Staff Building. We were there when it opened and there were perhaps 15 others waiting so no lines to buy tickets or check bags. We have seen the Impressionists in Paris but this collection seemed almost as complete
