What You Can Expect

Private Walking Tour in Russian Museum and Impressionism Collection from St Petersburg

Russian Museum

Meet your guide at your central St Petersburg hotel and relax on your private transfer to the Russian Museum. With your pre-paid tickets, head straight inside and set out to explore some of the 400,000 works of art on display.

Hear how the museum complex once belonged to Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich and was transformed into a museum by Alexander III at the end of the 19th century, as you admire the magnificent buildings. Along the way, admire the main collection on display in Mikhailovsky Palace and marvel at the Russian avant-garde collection in the Benois Wing.

After exploring Russia’s largest art collection, follow your guide to the spectacular Hermitage complex, where you’ll enjoy entrance to the beautifully restored General Staff Building. Inside, browse the show-stopping collection of 19th century art and learn more about Russia’s Impressionist and Postmodernist movements. Listen as your guide points out works by artists like Matisse and Picasso; admire exhibitions like the ‘Age of Art Nouveau’ and admire the gala halls of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Empire.

After a morning of unforgettable art, bid your guide farewell and end your tour by the Hermitage in Palace Square.
